Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome.
First, it does not require 6 weeks to recover from varicocele surgery. It is around 10-15 days,and even less if procedure is done laparoscopically.
Second,there is no natural or home remedy which is successfull in treating varicocele no matter what you read on internet. There are some products which may help with infertility,but these have no effect on testicle veins.

Wish you good health.
