Sounds to me like you need to get rechecked. Maybe gallstones as well. I've had a couple of boughts of stones but none that I threw up that much . Some of the pain meds maybe causing you to vomit. I would for sure go back and demand answers.
The smaller the stone the more pain, because it can move easier. Its the abrasion of the stone as it moves that hurts. The meds and pain can be causing the nausea. I would make an appointment first thing monday with my dr for followup tho.
Some stones are actually crystals and they have edges sharp as glass and can cause a lot of pain as the pass in the ureters (the tubes that lead from the kidneys to the bladder. They are very very painful. Most people who have had them say it was the worst pain they ever had. The pain can be bad enough to cause you to vomit. Hopefully you will feel better soon. You should follow up with a urologist. Toradol is very very stripping to the stomach and can cause bleeding ulcers. I'm surprised they sent you home on that because even a few days use can cause bleeding stomach ulcers. Try not to use it unless you have to and be sure if you do that you have food on your stomach.
