In brief: See Your Surgeon
Wound openings and wound infections are not uncommon with appendectomies.
Wounds opening up may do so because of many reasons primarily due to infection, non-healing, or more serious issues. Please see your surgeon promptly for evaluation.

It may be infected.
Get in to see your surgeon as soon as possible. Most likely it will not require further surgery, only wound care.
