Definitely NOT normal.
I did lots of research before having mine. Most resources give the usual info about feeling like you were kicked in the nads and having some bruising.
Some of the more candid sites go into some of the other problems that are not uncommon consequences of surgery - hematoma, extensive brusing, infection, the fact that a certain percentage of men are in pain for longer than the quoted weekend.
No where did I see that your nuts would hurt from letting them rest on a cushion (as opposed from too much physical activity). If it hurts to just rest them on something, it would hurt to simply touch them - that doesn't sound normal to me.
Now, I had this same problem (could not drive to work pain-free). That (and the fact that I always had to use the restroom) were likely the first signs something was wrong.
Today is Saturday. If he still cannot sit up normally by Monday (day 4) get thyselves to the urologist and get checked out (or get a urologist if one did you do the surgery). Until then, wear a jock, stay reclined, and use ice (frozen peas or corn kernels).
