This sounds like a hernia but you need to see your doctor to be sure. Hernias in the stomach area usually protrude more when trying to do a sit up or anything that strains the stomach muscles...but any swelling within the stomach will do this so it's best to see your doctor. I have never heard of the appendix being left in after bursting but that may just be ignorance on my part. Definitely get this checked out.
