Please get her in to see a vet. A veterinarian is your best bet right now.

Well, if you can't find a vet in your area that can help your lizard, I have found http://www.practical-pet-care.com/lizard_forum.php to be a very helpful place. Perhaps you could crosspost your question there where an expert can read and respond to it?

Did you had a calcium dish for her? Many complications with leos come when they don't have enough calcium to deposit on the egg shell (you should have a calcium dish even if you are not breeding). You should also not keep her all the time with the male, just for a short period of time during the breeding season. Do a search about leo breeding to know how to do it. About your leo now, you have to take it to a vet that knows about reptiles. Here is an article about a c-section done on a leo:

And here is a list by country and by state of lizard vets:

Good luck with her and let us know how it goes.
