A fluid collection: Most women of child bearing years have collections of fluid in the ovaries surrounded by a thin wall of tissue. This is an ovarian cyst and is common during each menstrual cycle. In most cases these are benign. Diet and exercise do not play a role as far as we know in reducing the risk of having a cyst.

Ovarian Cysts: That is a big cyst that should be followed by ultrasound and exam by a gynecologist. Must ask questions like is the cyst simple or complex, have solid structures, multiple, does it shrink and grow, is there sludge inside? Are you on birth control pills? It can rupture with severe exercise. Probably non-jarring exercise is safe. Be followed by a gynecologist. Most of these cysts go away. Read more

Okay to exercise: Usual exercise is not likely to affect the cyst. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Read more

4-6 weeks: I assume you had an open incision, called a laparotomy. If so, it usually takes 4-6 weeks to heal enough to begin more vigorous physical activity. When you do begin, go easy at first. Read more
