Sorry you're not feeling well. You should call your doctor right away this morning, sometimes it takes them a long time to get back to you, especially surgeons. The itching after taking medication is not a good sign, and usually denotes an allergy to the medication. You should try to get the Keflex switched to something like Clindamycin. A lot of pain meds are in the same class as Percocet (morphine-like pain killers), but some patients may be allergic to Percocet, and tolerate something in the same class like Vicodin or Tylenol Codeine #3. Some patients may need a pain killer in a totally different class, like Tramadol.
