Will the removal of my ureteral stent be painful?

Yesterday I had a cystoscopy during which the MD used a laser to break up a stubborn kidney stone. He then placed a stent with strings attached up in there somewhere and the strings extend out from my penis. I am scheduled to have the stent removed on Monday morning and the idea of pulling this thing out of my penis by yanking on the strings is giving me a bad case of the fantods. What can I expect here? Is it going to be a brief moment of hellish pain or should it slide out without excessive discomfort?
