Infected tooth extration problems

My Husband is out of the country and having problems. He was treated for an infection of a tooth several times. The dentist finally told him he could not save his tooth and it needed to be extracted. After the tooth was extracted it was expected that he would begin to heal and the pain would subside. That did not happen. He was instructed to use warm salt water rinses in the area but that did not help and his antibiotic presciption was changed to another. Instead the pain intensified and pockets or balls became evidant in the extraction site. He went back to the dentist and the dentist again went into his mouth and took out the pockets or balls that were inside the site. He said one was green, one yellowish and one pink were removed. Another dentist was called into the room and they spoke in a language that my husband did not understand and they spoke quietly and seriously together about him. He says it smells bad, painful and still bleeding slightly. I am worried and don't know what this is all about. Can anyone help me? He doesn't know the diognosis.
