I copied this information for you. If I understood your question correctly, you are asking if this medication is ok to help control her carpal tunnel syndrome pain? Please let me know if I misunderstood your question. Also, this site is not normally used by physicians. It's a support group made up of people in similar situations, to help each other, compare notes, and offer support. I'm very happy to hear your mother was cured of the ovarian cancer!! My best wishes for continued success.
"Ketorolac is only intended for short-term (up to 5 days) treatment of moderately severe pain. It should not be used to treat minor or long-term pain. Do not use more of Ketorolac than prescribed. Do not use Ketorolac to treat children.
Ketorolac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It may cause an increased risk of serious and sometimes fatal heart and blood vessel problems (eg, heart attack, stroke). The risk may be greater if you already have heart problems or if you take Ketorolac for a long time. Do not use Ketorolac right before or after coronary artery bypass graft (CABG).
Ketorolac may cause an increased risk of serious and sometimes fatal stomach ulcers and bleeding. Elderly patients may be at greater risk. This may occur without warning signs".
Do not use Ketorolac if:
* you are allergic to Ketorolac , aspirin, or any other NSAIDs (eg, ibuprofen, celecoxib)
* you are taking aspirin or another NSAID (eg, ibuprofen, celecoxib)
* you are breast-feeding or are in labor
* you have recently had or will be having CABG
* you have a stomach ulcer or a history of ulcers or severe stomach problems (eg, bleeding, perforation)
* you have severe kidney problems or are at risk of kidney failure (eg, low blood volume, dehydrated)
* you have bleeding in the brain (eg, stroke, aneurysm) or bleeding problems (eg, platelet disorder, hemophilia), or you are at risk of bleeding
Do not use Ketorolac to prevent pain before any major surgery
