PDF to PDF conversion creates much larger file?

Hello!

I was having some problems with some PDF files on my Nook Color, some would have pages show up as just large red Xs. It was suggested to me that I should convert these to PDF again through Calibre to fix this. I did, and it did fix the file. However the file size was increased dramatically, in one example it went from a 8.73 MB file to a 230.2 MB file. I can't fit all these files on my microSD card now because it went from less than 1 GB total to almost 6 GB!

Am I doing something wrong? Is there a setting to output lower file sizes? Why is it making it so darn huge? :/
