Is it possible for a ruptured complex ovarian cyst to heal and then continue to grow? Mine is still there after 8 weeks and no longer leaking fluid.

In brief: Caution is needed

It is rather difficult to tell from a sonographic exam if a "complex ovarian cyst" is benign (hemorrhagic corpus luteum, an endometrioma, a dermoid or other ) or is a malignant ovarian tumor. Laparoscopic surgery or abdominal exploratory surgery is unfortunately the only reliable way to find out.
A careful reevaluation and consultation with a Gyn Oncologist seem advisable at this point.

In brief: Ovarian cyst

it is certainly possible for a ovarian cyst to rupture and if with a very small hole, seal over and persist.
this is not very concerning as long as the system does not continue to grow or cause pain. continue to monitor your symptoms and follow up with your gynecologist. Consider starting birth control to control the development of cysts.
