Hello and welcome to e health forum.

It is common to have some form of pain for a few weeks after appendectomy, as a result of persistent inflammation at the operated site.

In case of severe intolerable pain, along with symptoms like nausea, vomiting, high grade fever, you might consult your operating surgeon for a review examination and further management.
