Dr. says no laxatives for fear of rupture.

I've been searching the archives for info on partial obstructions which I am pretty sure at this point I have. My PCP is very fearful that I may have a "rupture" if there is a blockage or partial obstruction and I take a powerful laxative. But from what I have been reading here it seems that may be the only way people can get past it, if they are not hospitalized, or in excruciating pain, or distended. (Which I am not) Has anyone heard of this? I appreciate any feedback. Thank you - Heather
