Constipated King Snake

Hi all, this is the first time dealing with constipation in my 8 year old king snake. She is eating super well and there are no indications that there’s anything wrong except for a bump and slight swelling near her cloaca. I have been soaking her about every other day and have taken her to the vet twice. The first time, they took x rays and only saw feces, nothing the vet was too worried about. They administered fluids and she pooped a very small amount the next morning. Now 2 weeks later, the bump is still slightly there (smaller than before) but no more poop. She usually eats and poops weekly.

I took her to the vet again yesterday per their recommendation to get more fluids. Immediate urate but still no poop. ): I wouldn’t be worried if the bump wasn’t there. The vet didn’t give me much more info besides telling me to continue baths and keeping her tank humid (which I am doing).

Has anyone seen this in their king snake? She’s definitely hungry but I’m not sure if I want to feed her yet without any more poop. Any additional recommendations? Kind of at a loss. Thanks all, appreciate any responses!
