Hi @pittsteelcity and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I added your discussion to the Digestive Health group as well as the pain group. Fellow members @nick43 @choover22 and @es2000ca have had appendectomies and may be able to share their thoughts about recovery. You may also be interested in this discussion that @shanamarie22 started a while back:

Pittsteelcity, recovery can take longer when the appendix has also burst (peritonitis). It sounds like your surgery was pretty significant. How much activity are you able to do? Do you feel the heaviness only after sitting for long periods of time or short periods too? Do you feel the same sensation when you get up from lying, after sleeping?

Especially after sitting and getting up from bed
