In brief: Doubt

An uneventful appedectomy should not have any effect on the urinary systems.
On the contrary obstetric trauma e.g. Childbirth could cause stress incontinence among other reasons. Also, you should wonder about the effect of a new medicine if you started one recently.

In brief: No

Unless there were extenuating circumstances, appendectomy should not cause stress incontinence.
