No the injection would not hurt your stomach. I don't know if ibuprophen comes in an injectable form but a much stronger NSAID called toradol does and when I received it for kidney stones the nurse put it my IV and as she was doing it I started to ask how long it would take to work but before the sentence could even come out of my mouth the pain was gone-I liked the toradol.
I hope they are able to find something to help you

Toradol is an NSAID, is every effective and more and more hospitals are resorting to it, even in place of morphine and demerol as being as effective as they are or more but w/less side effects. The risk is that it IS an NSAID and thus DOES have the potential for digestive upset but considerably less so than oral NSAIDs since it doesn't pass thru the upper GI tract AND it MUST be diluted AND administered PROPERLY due to the risk of phlebitis and damage to the veins.

Ask me, due to NOT being diluted enough, I encountered superficial thrombophlebitis in my forearm AND a blood clot in my axillary vein in that arm resulting in 3 days of hospitalization, daily and weekly blood draws and six months of coumadin therapy.

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.

I like C2 do not use any NSAIDS. I have been offered toradol before but always request they not use it because I have Crohns disease. No NSAIDS for me, they were one of the main causes for me to come out of remission.
