 Large obstruction options?

I have a CWD just over a year old that decided to eat several rocks from the enclosure. I took her to the vet who x-rayed her and found several rocks in her system. He said to give her enemas to try to pass them. She passed most but one big one won’t go through and she is impacted and weak. My vet said the only other option is to travel 200 miles to a vet that could do a surgery, for an unknown cost.
My questions are.
Is there anything else I can do to help her pass it?
Is there any way to get her to throw it up? Work it out the other way?
Can someone give me an idea how much a surgery like this should cost?
Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Looks like you have a vet visit in your future. I can’t tell you how much it will cost, but prepare to grab your ankles. It usually ends up more than you ever anticipated. Hopefully the vet will allow you to do payments on the surgery.

Your looking at 500-2000$ for an obstruction surgery. Throwing it up would be impossible likely past that point.warm water baths help bowl movements. Little amounts of food maybe even none would be best. More food you feed the more impaction. If you do feed .feed her soft self worms or butters wax and small horned worms maybe.
