Hernia??

I had my appendix removed 2 weeks ago and now I have a hard lump under my belly button. It's pushing on the bottom half of my belly button so it's sticking out. Could this be a hernia or just a part of the surgery recovery?
Yes I'm seeing a doc at 9:45 tomorrow morning for a check up just wondered other people's experiences.

I had this after my appendix too. 6 years later it isn’t as big. But I also had a blog clot behind it too. It also can be scar tissue and fluid. Goes away :)

OP Yeah I saw the doctor and they aren't worried, just told me to keep an eye on it. My belly button wound is infected so they were more concerned about that. :)
