The best treatment for impaction is to put it in the fridge.

Find a bowl with a lid, fill it full of dechlorinated water, and pop it with your axolotl in the fridge. Keep a jug of fresh dechlorinated water in there as well for water changes. Hopefully it will pass the stones.

Hi hanniebee.

I agree with Kaysie, this may be stating the obvious but have you removed the stones?
