Post-neutering problems

This is the dog of a friend of mine, she lives in china and is really concerned about her dog's health, she doesn't trust the vets over there because according to her, dogs are treated as food and people don't really give a damn about them. US sites are blocked

Now to the point, the dog got neutered this tuesday (09/04) he's 10 years old and has gone through pretty rough pain, he was panting a lot the first few days and could barely sleep, or sit down (he even tried to sleep while standing up), the e-collar really seems to be bothering him.

Here's a pic the dog today and yesterday, NOTE: I'm not adding the pics directly into the post so I don't force people to see something they might not wanna see.

The vets absolutely refuse to give him pain meds, the only anesthetic used was zoletil, injected through muscle. No gas, nothing else, they gave him several pre-surgery shots.

Does this look like he's healing normally? For how long is this supposed to be swollen? Is there anything she can do to make things easier for the dog?

That poor dog! What was the logic in neutering a 10 year old dog?
The swelling in the scrotum is most likely serum or blood and will tend to contract, but it should have already dried up. He has to wear an e-collar until it is dried up, otherwise he will probably chew it up since he is in so much pain.
The only suggestion I could make would be to put a compress on it. A warm compress would probably feel better but it might cause the serum to break up. A cold compress (put a few ice cubes in a wash rag, do not apply the ice cubes directly to the lesion) would probably be okay. I really wish she had a vet over there that would put her dog on pain meds.
