Okay, then I'll be a little more explicit. I did not notice or don't remember how much "fluid" was in the good size syringe they used when I was given the Toradol - but - it was administered in the first "port" just above where the IV was set in the "dumbie" vein at the base of my thumb just above the wrist. It stung like a .... son of a gun!!! But that wasn't the problem.
The Toradol SHOULD have been administerd AT LEAST in the highest "port" away from the IV set and preferably IN a small bag of IV fluid (saline??). (I read this in a nursing forum discussion of IV phenergan, Toradol and demerol). There is speculation whether 10 ccs of "fluid" is sufficient dilution. Due to my experience, I printed out all the nursing forum comments regarding IV Toradol and phenergan and provided them to the head of our hospital's laboratory. This resulted in new protocol directives for use of IV Toradol and phenergan by our hospital.
I encountered NO GI upset or aggravation of my small intestine Crohn's involvement due to the use of the Toradol. However, given that I've had IV demerol MANY times thru the years w/absolutely no problems, altho it is thought NOT to be as effective for pain as Toradol I will make it clear that I prefer demerol to Toradol due to the NSAID risk w/Crohn's.
