What to do after a bad interaction with very tame ig

Long story short, I either pinched or scared my iguana with a lid to a box she hadn't used in a while. This was a potty box with water. She was trying to jump out and I've always used the lid to partially cover it to calm her down. She freaked out trying to dive and hide. We were outdoors off leash but I decided to remove the lid completely and remove it from the equation. She reacted as if she feared me. I gave her space to calm down since my yard is huge and I trust I can recapture her. She ran accross the yard then realized she didn't feel safe and stopped to allow me to approach and retrieve her. I took her inside to poop in the bath tub which she did. She was so mad at me though that she didn't even want to climb my arm to come out of the tub. I've never in 3 years upset her like that. I've given her banana to make piece. Is there anything else I can do to set it right. We don't have bad days like that (except moving). Also I checked her over and I'm sure she's not injured.
