Hi, Welcome to the forum and I am really glad to help you out.

Usually it is recommended to avoid strenuous physical activities during the first 4-6 weeks of any surgery as this is the time which is required for the healing of the surgical wounds.

Hence, you should have avoided it. Anyhow, the vomiting which you had could be due to acute gastritis. You should consult your surgeon.

If you don’t have any local pain or tenderness in the region of the appendix, then I presume there shouldn’t be much to worry. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
