Patient Comments: Bowel Incontinence - Cause

What was the cause of your bowel incontinence?

Comment from: Dolores, 55-64 Male (Caregiver) Published: January 23

My husband just started taking Fosamax once a week and today he could not control his bowels. There was no warning at all and all of a sudden, he went. This is very upsetting to him of course as he is concerned that the incontinence may occur in the wrong place.

I cannot narrow down the triggers. After 3 to 4 days of incidences muscle pain develops in back and legs.
