The doctor is giving me an injection of toradol and 800 mg of ibuprofen, I have read these shouldnt be taken together should i be concerned or trust the doctor?
You should be concerned since their use together is contraindicated.
"The use of ketorolac in combination with other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may increase the risk of serious NSAID adverse effects including renal failure and gastrointestinal inflammation, hemorrhage, ulceration, and perforation. "
You could show this link to your doctor and ask for his/her opinion.
