In brief: No

There is no correlation between constipation and appendicitis .
This disease is a random occurrence which can be triggered by something occluding the lumen of the organ, such as a seed , a growth, or even a small nodule of stool (fecalith.) for constipation at a young age, strive for a balanced diet, including grains, fruits , and vegetables. Make sure you drink plenty of fluids.
