      I recommend trying to stay away from NSAIDs as I’ve personally gone from normal bowel movements to bleeding ulcers just from taking NSAIDs. During one hgospitlziation one medical doctgor hospitalzie conmvicend me, in my vulnerble state, that Toradol has  different MOA(Mechanism Of Action and would not cause any problems. Since I was in a high level of pain, and not thinking clearly,  I agreed. Thankfully the GI and ID team overulled that decision a few days later to save me from further complications.
