Punched in incision of appendectomy. Should I be concerned if I am starting to feel sick?

Three Mondays ago, I had an appendectomy . My appendix was only inflamed so it was a relatively simple process of them doing a laproscopic (sp?) surgery. Today, a friend who didn t know that I had the appendectomy jokingly punched me multiple times where two of the three incisions were, one in the belly button and the one to the left of it. Should I be concerned if I am starting to feel sick?

Thanks for posting your query
I dont think it is of much concerned. You will worry much and consult doctor if the followings are present -
1. constant persisting pain over that area
2. discharge from the incision site
In these cases you should consult your surgeon and usg scan if needed should also be done.
As already 3 weeks have already passed i think the punch will not cause much damage.
Meanwhile you should continue post-op antibiotics, dressing of the wound, nutritious diet.
You should also do some abdominal muscle wall strengthening exercises.
Thank you.
