For Postoperative Pain: "I was prescribed Ketorolac for 3 days following Hernia surgery. I had zero pain whatsoever. I felt so good I was afraid I might forget about the lifting requirements post surgery."

For Postoperative Pain: "I had back surgery. The first night they have me morphine, hydrocodone, robaxin. None of this helped the pain. I was in tears. They finally have me Dilaudid, the first dose of that didn't help, was given a stronger dose of Dilaudid it helped a little. My husband was amazed at all they had given me that did not help. Even with the Dilaudid it wore off to fast. After crying all night & the next day with pain they finally put me in toradol. I had almost instant relief. It was like night & day. Pain went from a 10+ to a 5. But the Dr only gave me 3 doses. Sent home with only hydro & robaxin my pain level has gone back up to at least an 8 & higher than that when the muscle spasms start. Also did not have muscle spasms while taking toradol."

Toradol (ketorolac) for Pain: "Approximately 3 weeks after having a posterior Foraminotomy / laminectomy I began having the same pain as I had prior to the surgery. The nerve pain & numbness became increasingly worse so I call the surgeon's PA at 4 weeks post op to find out if it was normal. He called in a Toradal script Friday. I took 2 pills (as prescribed) & 1 pill every 6 hours as needed for pain. It's Sunday & I'm extremely pleased with the result so far! I have complete pain relief taking this in combination with Percocet!"

Toradol (ketorolac) for Pain: "I was suffering from a somewhat severe case of costochondritis. Felt like a heart attack sometimes. Went to the emergency room and an IV injection of toradol was administered to me. Felt a buzz coming on. More pronounced than the saline solution injected into me. Other than that the pain was mostly gone within a few hours after I got discharged."

Toradol (ketorolac) for Pain: "I have been suffering from Tonsillitis for 5 days, my tonsils were extremely swollen and full of pus. I could not swallow without excruciating pain. I went to my primary care doctor and got a dose of Toradol. Along w/ IV fluids, antibiotics and steroids. Within 45 mins my throat was about 60% less painful. By the end of the day I could swallow completely without any pain. I'm sure both the IV and Toradol played parts in this, but I believe the Toradol was the extra punch I needed."

Toradol (ketorolac) for Pain: "I have about 8-10 migraines a month that leave me hugging the toilet, and/or hiding in the dark closet with a pile of blankets. Today was the first time they tried anything other than Excedrin Migraine. Toradol! A shot :-\...Oh my, for the first time since 2008 I don't have pain in my back and neck. She said it would not make me tired but I just spent a nice 4 hr nap in zero pain. Yes, the injection had a mild heat like pain for a few minutes. But to feel like this is pretty much awesome!"

Toradol (ketorolac) for Pain: "I went to Urgent Care for what turned out to be a kidney stone. I was in severe pain and they finally (after begging) gave me Toradol in my IV. It took quite awhile to just take the edge off. It lasted about 3 hours. When I left, they gave me another pain killer that nicely did the trick!"

Toradol (ketorolac) for Pain: "I suffer from chronic migraines and every dr wants to give toradol shots to stop them. Toradol is not FDA approved as a treatment for migraines. It does not work."

Toradol (ketorolac) for Pain: "Was given an im injection in the buttocks for migraines and it was completely ineffective. The pain that the injection caused was infuriating considering there was absolutely no relief of the headache."

Toradol (ketorolac) for Pain: "I was in the middle of passing a kidney stone. I was admitted to the ER with severe pain in right side, tremors, cold sweats, nausea, vomiting, feeling of full bladder and need to urinate but inability to urinate. I was given IV toradol and the pain subsided within a minute. I was even able to get some shut eye on and off for maybe an hour. Of the IV drugs I have received, this one had me the most clear headed, functional, aware. It staved off the pain for about 3-4 hours, after which I asked for another injection before being released from the ER, as the pain was returning with the nausea. NOTE: I have been having severe (2 or 3 at rest, 7-9 in wrong position) right leg pain for a few months. Toradol ineffective. Nerve pain?"

Toradol (ketorolac) for Postoperative Pain: "It was used in an IV after a hemmorhoidectomy. I also have epilepsy which I am not on medication for. After they used the toradol in the IV, I was able to go home and was virtually pain free all day and felt great with no complications for my epilepsy. After the toradol wore off, even with other pain medication, I could see what a difference it made. It is a woňďer drug!"

For Postoperative Pain: "I have been taking hydrocodone 10mg. 325 Tylenol 4x a day for several years. I also take Ultram 4xaday. My pain is severe. I went to the E.R. a few weeks ago with strained muscles between my shoulder bones in my back. I was given a toradol injection and a prescription for toradol pills. Only 15 of them. I took the toradol as I was supposed to and got a lot of relief. I did not have to take my pain meds for a week. I had no side affects. I wish I could take this on a regular basis and do away with the other pain meds."

For Pain: "I was prescribed this med for kidney stone pain and it worked great. Within 30 minutes of taking it I had near total relief after 12 hours of excruciating pain. It actually worked more than the IV pain medication I was given in-hospital. So far no unpleasant side effects either, though I took it with a good meal as suggested."

For Postoperative Pain: "I broke my jaw in two places and had to have my jaw wired shut. My teeth were pretty banged up as well and I'm probably going to have to get some root canals or teeth removed once my jaw heals up, but I can say that for as long as I was taking ketorolac, I wasn't experiencing basically any pain, nor was I groggy or tired. Now I have to switch to ibuprofen, but ketorolac did the job for my time with it."
