Ketorolac is a reversible NSAID given IV, all NSAIDs have a risk of interstitial nephritis, renal ischemia, gastric ulcers, and aplastic anemia.

the best answer is renal failure b/c it is given IV and has less of a chance of causing gastric ulcers

tiredofstudying  I would also take into account that this patient has had HTN and T2DM for 20 years. His kidneys are probably shot. +
