ok so my Versicolor Molted about 1 week ago, and she was stuck in it so i helped her out but after her struggling for so long she has 2 broken legs and like 3 broken toes, she is fine moving around the big issue now is... i think her spinnerets still have molt on them and its just like a clump how would i get this off, she is about 1 1/2 inches and moves around if i even get close to it

You can try wetting the stuck molt with water. But it may be too late to remove the molt now, since it's been a week. You can only hope that it'll be ok with the next molt.

Only thing you can do now is ICU or keep it moist in it's enclosure. It likely wont make it through though.:(

The only problem I see is if the rectum(not certain if that is what it is called on a t but you get what I mean) is plugged. If not and it is only the spinneretes with molt on them then it should be fine, just may not be able to web until the next molt.
