Its been a week since my dads removal of his appendix and today he said he drank water and it was leaking out of his incision. What does that indicate ?

This can indicate a number of things. Most likely he just has fluid in his peritoneum [abdominal cavity] that is forced out of the incision when the stomach expands.
