Fosamax and coughing up blood

My 78 year old father has osteoporosis and spinal stenosis and has been on fosamax for two years. Yesterday, upon arising in the morning, he coughed up a small amount of blood. This morning, he did similarly. He will be seeing his doctor this week, but in the interim, I have suggested that he cease taking the fosamax. Has anyone here had any experience with esophagael bleeding due to fosamax? I am wondering if this could be the cause of his bleeding. My father is not a smoker and feels fine otherwise. Any info would be so greatly appreciated.
