Hi Candice,
Welcome to Healthcare Magic!
Your husband seems to be having a viral syndrome.
Most likely a mononucleosis/mono., rarely same symptoms are possible with HIV seroconversion or a hematologic malignancy.
It is a real pitiable situation of healthcare at your place that you have to wait for so long.
You can start him on OTC Ultracet tablet 6hourly topped up by Paracetamol(acetaminophen)500 mg as required.
You can mean while get the mono and HIV serology done and a CBC LFT done just to rule out prime suspects.
I hope the advise would be useful for you.

The lymph nodes in the groin region usually enlarge in condition where there is infection of the lower limbs and the genital area.

Walking bare foot can also cause enlarged lymph nodes in the groin.

He can try a course of broad spectrum antibiotic and see if it reduces. Alternatively, a biopsy of the lymph node can be done to conclude on the cause and may be treated accordingly.

I wish your husband quick recovery.
