In brief: Keep working

Esophageal varices can bleed and if you presented this way and have been appropriately treated then ask your physician when to return to work.
Known esophageal varices without bleeding should not keep you from working, and maintaining adequate nutrition, exercise, and rest should help you. Progression of the liver damage may weaken you to the point of decreasing performance at work, then stop.
