This could be very inconvenient.
I really ought to finish that dratted prequel and launch the five novels I've spent a decade re-writing.
Wishing you the best MLE. I had an ovarian cyst over twice the size of yours removed via keyhole surgery last year - recovery time was about 2/3 weeks. Unfortunately I'm prone to them as I have polycystic ovaries. Ovarian cysts are most usually benign but they can be very painful although strangely enough I only had twinges of pain with that very large one - it was discovered through a routine ultrasound. Some previous cysts had disappeared by themselves but this one didn't look like it was going anywhere so my gynaecologist decided on surgery.
