I think you should get a second opinion. A 7cm ovarian cyst is not normal. Hopefully it's a benign cyst, but 7cm is the size we usually recommend removal. At that size (and since it's gotten bigger), it's likely to be part of an ovarian tumor, rather than just the functional cysts that we see so much.
Your other symptoms of bloating and exhaustion may or may not be related to hormonal changes going on with you. You may be menopausal or perimenopausal, and a blood test for FSH would help to figure it out. Bloating and exhaustion are also the symptoms we often see from stress. However, a blood test for hemoglobin and thyroid function would be indicated.
So I would get a second opinion.
You're welcome. I wish you the best.
