Hi and welcome to HCM.
I dont think this is related to your appendix surgery unless you recieved anticoagulant therapy. Whether you notice spotting or heavier bleeding in between periods, it’s important to see your doctor for testing, diagnosis, and treatment options. Potential other causes of bleeding between periods include a growth in the uterus or cervix, stressm change in medicatioa miscarriage, vaginal dryness. Your doctor will also likely give you a physical exam, including a pelvic exam.
Diagnostic tests can help your doctor find the cause of the bleeding. Your doctor may draw blood to check hormone levels. Then right treatment can be recommened.

Wish you good health. Regards
