Topic: 5.0 file size issue - why does fewer pages result in larger file size?

I'm using 5.0. I received a file that contained 137 pages and was 849 KB. Through a series of extractions, insertions and deletions (making many mistakes*) I finally ended up with a 26 page document that is 5.5MB. I did a file save as and used the PDF Consultant command to optimize space and that took it down 3.3MB but I still can't understand why it ballooned in the first place. I've used the space auditor and almost 100% is "unknown." Does anyone know why a document with fewer pages is larger in size? Do you know what the fix is? Thanks in advance.
*I made mistakes in some deletions so those pages needed to be re-inserted.
