 Remedy for constipated burm?

I have a full grown male burm that I’ve recently nursed back to health from very poor condition. he is looking alot better but will not poop any solids, only urates. His back section where his intestines would be is very thin and he has little to no muscle movement or any sign of in that area. I can feel a solid mass inside and have been able help him pass some using a warm bath and mineral oil, but the problem persists no matter what i do. He lately has been a voracious eater but i am hesitant to feed him too much while this continues...any help?

donít no if this helps but i have a ball python that just until three days ago
had the same problem. before then he hadnít gone since the 2 of January. i say just help him by doing what your doing by bathing him in Luke warm water. this was when my b/p passed the white urites. the swim he has will make him use the muscles he doesnít normally use. do this once or twice a week and then just let nature do her work! my b/p ate 1 rat pup a week (hes only young) he had at least 12-14 inside him. he has however done his stuff!! u can imagine how much was there. anyway hope this helps!!!!!!!
