That is really interesting info. I've always heard it was almost certain death if the eggs didnt come out in a month or two. I've only ever experienced "egg binding" in a ball python and she had one egg in for about 9 months (kept eating and acting normal) before she died. There was no reptile vet in the town I was living at the time so I decided to take a look for myself after she died and there was a lot of thick yellowish pus/ mucus stuff around the egg... like a super bad infection that I had no idea was going on from the outside.

I've never heard of this spray method. Is it just a chemical spray that gets put into the body cavity to lubricate/ stimulate or what?

A solid reptile/snake vet can be hard to find. I had one that I trusted with doing fecal floats and dosing flagyl and simple things like that but he left town several months back. Now there is only one vet in my town that will even see a snake and he's a goof. I brought in a milk after a regurge and he said "snakes just vomit alot, mostly because they cant digest bones, there's nothing to worry about" and sent me on my way.(seriously) Ended up being a temp issue anyway... loose plug behind a stack of cages and that milk is doing great now.
