Thanks for posting your query.

What I understand from your question is that you are recently diagnosed with ovarian cyst and at present having swollen stomach and looks bloated.

Bloating and swelling of stomach is not related to ovarian cyst.Ovarian cyst can lead to pain or heaviness on that side and some discomfort.

There can be menstrual irregularity as well.

The reason for bloating stomach could be,

Some heavy food having high content of fat
Some indigestion
Too much of soft drinks
Some pain killer medicines

Please do the following which should help.

1. Take light diet; avoid eating too much at a time. Take frequent small meals.
2. Avoid junk food and soft drinks
3. Do not take any pain killers
4. Do some light walk after meals
5. Do not go to bed for at least 2 hours after dinner
6. You can try some of the over the counter antacids which can help.

In most of the cases this should help and you should be fine. In case the problem worsens you may need to visit your doctor for physical examination.

I hope this helps
