Orchiectomy Blood Clot and Follow-Up

I had my right testicle removed in late December and have some follow-up question. I developed a blood clot shortly after surgery and was told that it would naturally dissipate over 2-3 months. It was getting smaller but in the last month has tripled in size and is quite tender and painful. After two ultrasounds, they maintain that it will go away on its own and are content to wait 1-2 more months and "see what happens." Additionally, my entire lower abdomen and upper thigh is in a constant state of pins and needles, numbness, or dull throbbing pain. I was told that this could be from nerve irritation and could last up to 1 year, and in more serious cases could be nerve damage and remain permanently. I'm just looking for some more info as I am leery of military doctors. Thanks.
