What JSWolf is asking is what program did you use to convert a PDF to a Word docment?
Some PDF conversion programs tend to convert the text to images, in order to crop of white space and bold the text. This really blows up the size of a PDF
But before any real advice can be given, at the very least we need to know how the PDF was converted.
