Has testicular torsion been ruled out? That is probably the first thing they checked for, but just to make sure. It is a very serious emergency that needs to be corrected right away. I don't want to alarm you , but that is the first thing that came to mind when you say it is blue and painful.
I'm also kind of surprised that they arent taking care of this sooner. My son had an undescended testicle that was due to a hernia. I had seen a urologist and they told me if he was ever in pain or had swelling to bring him to the er. Well, sure enough, one day his hernia started to bulge and we had to go the er. While there, they were able to compress it and my son wasn't in pain anymore. They gave him a dose of oxycodone(sp?) for the pain. If they weren't able to compress it, they would have done emergency surgery.
I know it's not the same thing, but I do remember the pediatrician worrying that he had a hydrocele and we were transfered to Children's Hospital.
I'm not trying to freak you out but I would be a little pushy with the doctors... If your son is in pain, he shouldn't have to wait a week, yk.
