I am glad you made a vet appointment? It might be that your turtle has an infection. Until your appointment you can do a couple things, first make sure the tank is warm enough. Temps should be around 76-80 F. Make sure they have a good basking area with slightly warmer temps to encourage basking. Warmth helps when they are not feeling well so you may want to increase these temps slightly.
Good Luck and welcome to the forum.
