Sounds like Pepys was unaware that a kidney stone causes the most pain passing through the ureter, from the kidney to the bladder. Once it reaches the bladder, there's usually little pain involved in it passing out through the urethra. I've talked to some people in the 21st century who were similarly unaware of this.
