Indoor Cycling and its effects on varicose veins

I am an indoor cycling instructor and just had ablation on my left leg a week ago. Does anyone have any studies or has access to any materials that deal with this subject? In particular I like to know what the relationship is when increasing resistance on a bike and its correspondence to additional weight on the legs. In order to simulate hill climbs the resistance has to be increased. For example is a quarter turn equal to two and half pounds or five pounds? I was advised to take two weeks off my cycling before resuming pending the follow up visit.

Thank you,
Chuck Wadium
