Toradol review by 50 year old female patient

  Rating
Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Considerably Effective
Side effects:   Moderate Side Effects
  
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   pain relief after surgery
Dosage & duration:   10 mg taken every 6 hours for the period of one day
Other conditions:   none
Other drugs taken:   none
  
Reported Results
Benefits:   I took this drug for pain relief due to surgery (laproscopically assisted hysterectomy). Although the pain I experienced wasn't great the drug did relieve it but the side effects were not worth it.
Side effects:   It's hard to know as I was swollen from the surgery but the drug's listed side effects are swelling if the torso, thighs, and legs. I was very swollen when I left the hospital and it didn't dissapate.
Comments:   I was given the drug intravenously while in the hospital and a perscription when I went home. I was swollen from my breasts to my toes and attributed this to the surgery.I had told my doctor that I couldn't tolerate a high does of ibuprofen so she prescribed the generic toradol as pain relief. When the swelling showed no signs of abating, I looked up the drug's side effects and saw that swelling of the torso, thighs and legs was listed. I was trying to reduce the swelling so I stopped taking it and switched to 1 ibuprofen 4 times a day. That relieved the pain and the swelling immediately started to go down. When I told my doctor she said swelling of the torso was not a normal effect of the surgery. I conclude that the drug was at fault.
