Blood Clot after Inguinal Hernia Surgery

My boyfriend had Inguinal hernia surgery on his left side. The first two days after surgery he was ok, just normal post surgery pain. Then the 3rd or 4th day the pain worsened, he cant pee and is constipated. He cant walk and I just haven't ever seen him in so much pain EVER. We went to the hospital and they said it was a blood clot in his testicle and to go home because there was nothing they could do. He woke up and the pain is getting worse and worse. What are the risks of this blood clot in his testicle and is it true that theres nothing he can do for it?
