Can Uric Acid be Excreted Without Feces?

My leopard gecko is drinking a-lot of water but is not pooping. She recently bloated up to the point where I needed to take her to the vet. The vet then drained 10 grams of fluid. I’m worried she is bloating up again, and I guess I’m just holding onto some hope that she will be able to pass the fluid, even if she is impacted (vet is not certain, even after ultrasound).

I know leopard geckos pass uric acid with their feces, but does anyone know if they can pass large amounts of fluid without fecals helping it along?
