How soon after a varicocele embolization can you return to your regular workout regimen?

In brief: Several weeks
The size of the varicocele (enlargement of the veins) will decrease in several weeks.
Embolization can be used if surgical approaches are contra-indicated as success rates with surgery are higher. I would wait at least 4-6 weeks or longer based on the nature of the regular workout regimen.
