I have a long history of narcotic drug dependency, mainly heroin use. I went into the ER with an insect bite which was infected because I had tried to drain it myself. Don't Do That! I was given IV Toradol during my 5 day stay in the hospital. My 2nd day there I had to have surgery. Post op I took only Toradol, it did great for managing my pain. I chose not to go the narcotic route due to my drug abuse history. Had it not been for this medication, I could have very well been on the road to relapse following my surgery. I do have to mention that IV Toradol does wonders for me but when I had a prescription for the pills, they gave me awful nightmares and upset stomach along with some other unwanted side effects.
I had a C-section and the first day they gave me Toradol injections. I have to say, it definitely helped the pain for me and I did not have any side effects. I was concerned about it going through breast milk while I was receiving it but I was told by the nurses not to worry. I would definitely use it again and recommend it if someone inquired about it.
Awesome post surgery drug. I got to stay away from the morphine and other narcotics. You can only take it for a couple of days, but if you don't want narcotics and want to keep a clear head ask for Toradol.
Was given this after three wisdom teeth were taken out. Can't say it made a big difference in the pain though I don't know what it would have been like without it. It was definitely not enough to stop the pain. Had to resort to the hydrocodone to withstand the pain. That was better than Toradol. So overall, not a big fan of the Toradol.
Where has this drug been my entire life? I had rectal surgery and used Toradol for the post-op pain. Wonderful!! Got rid of the pain and no narcotic effect. Was clear-headed and could function. No side-effects for me.

I was so very pleased to have taken this pain reliever following surgery. It was strong enough to help with the pain yet I had none of the nausea and dizziness that I get with most other pain medicines.
