Took 1g of Azithromyacin on Thursday for cervicitis. I'm having foot surgery tomorrow and surgeon will give me 2g Ancef (cefazolin). Is this going to be okay?

In brief: Yes.

As long as you are not allergic to Cephalosporins (Ancef), there should not be any problem. The only issue to look out for is symptoms of a vaginal yeast infection (itching, white vaginal discharge) which can be seen in women taking antibiotics.
