In brief: A few

Many times, keterolac, or toradol, is given IV during the procedure.
It is a non steroidal antiinflammatory. Also, other steroids such as dexethasone or solumedrol (methylprednisolone) are given as well.

In brief: Could be toradol

Each anesthesiologist uses a different combination of medications, but often times toradol is used.
Toradol is a very strong NSAID used for post operative discomfort and inflammation.
