Major pain and worsening of varicocele after Coil Embolization

My boyfriend had a coil embolization recently to treat a fairly significant varicocele. We were told that other than being sore for a few days, there would be no pain and the varicocele should be gone almost immediately.
It cleared up a bit after the embolization, but within 24 hours had gotten WORSE than it was before the surgery and he has been in almost constant pain ever since... as of yesterday that pain had TRIPLED since the embolization. It hurts to sit, it hurts to move... he said he has never felt this bad in his life.
He is going to call the urologist tomorrow, but does anybody have any suggestions? Should we go to the emergency room?

Hes probably going to have to be castrated, or even worse, can cause death. But thats quite rare.
