 HELP! IMPACTED FIREBELLY TOAD!!

i do not have gravel as a substrate on land, but i do have some on a slope to the water and in the water, im really nervous a cricket made its way right near the slope and one of my firebelly toads got a piece of gravel.....his midsection is WAY bigger than it usualy is, he’s acting the same, swimming, everything, but he just looks huge and its been that way for about 2 days now, He’s also lost some of his color, which has never happened before. Any suggestions on what i can do?! or is there nothing to do...which i think is the answer. There are NO vets around here that can help me.

My toad recently did the same thing it got to the point it couldn’t touch the ground with its legs, i took it to the vet, he turned off the lights put a bright light to its stomach and could see it was fluid so he stuck it with a syringe and it popped now everything is fine
