My partner has a hernia

What can I do to help him feel more comfortable? We are going to the doctor tomorrow. I'm sure they'll suggest surgery, as that seems to be the only real solution from what I've read, but he has no insurance. He's 47; is normally a pretty tough motherfucker but injured himself ("pulled something") lifting big logs into his woodsplitter after the storm last week. That was a couple of days ago; when he woke up this morning his inner thigh and lower abdomnen were extremely tender to the touch. Now his left nut is slightly swollen as is the area above it. He's in a lot of pain. WTF can we do to get some relief?

Guess I'm not gettin any tonight, either
