How Long Does It Take For A Kidney Stone To Move From The Kidney To The Bladder?

I have a kidney stone somewhere between my kidney and my bladder. The right side of my back has been sore for 2 weeks so far. At times I have extreme stabbing pain (pain level 9 to 10) and other times I have just constant pain (pain level 7 to 8). But the pain is always there. Last time I experienced this it took about a month total for it to be out of my body? How long does it normally take? Let me know.
