Brief Answer:
Could be anywhere from hours to weeks.

Detailed Answer:
I have understood your problem and from the history you have provided I gave you that answer above.But you must keep in mind that it can only be possible if you take proper treatment. Usually after the first episode of pain stone passes with in 3-4 weeks. If that has not happened then that stone may be stuck somewhere in the middle and it even may cause infection so after that period have a CT scan done to know about the position of the stone. As the stone is at the UV junction you are having more pain. You can take ibuprofen if pain is more and you cannot tolerate.
Hope this answer is helpful.Follow-up questions are always welcome.
