Had a fall. Injuries on ribs, back, lungs and abdomen, change in urine color. Reason?

6 - 7 weeks ago i fell from standing onto a granite curling stone - i was immediately gasping for breath and had a lot of pain in the area where my underwired bra would be and at the point of contact half way up my right side. after a few minutes sitting on the ice-rink gasping i was helped to standing to rest on a chair. 30 mins later at Emergency clinic i was told i had probably broken a rib or two,given pain-killers and sent home.(no x-ray as it is not normal practise to now with suspected broken ribs as they are hard to see). i have since visited GP three times telling them i had have brown urine in the morning and stron smelling greenish wee during the day.A week ago i woke and noticed a crackling noise from my back? lung on the side of injury - saw GP who said it was clear now and was probably fluid pooling at night then draining as i was active during the day. i had a bruise on my side but nowhere else when i injured myself which i fund strange as i normaly bruise very easily. my rib pain has greatly reduced except for the part under my breast and a warm sensation over my lung area front and back. i now feel that ihave a tight band under my chest at the top o my abdomen . i occassionally have a little cough and still occassionaly hear the rattle/crackle noise after a walk in the fresh air or in the morning. i have no fever. i am concerned about the colour of my urine, lack of bruising considering the heavy fall onto a granite block with a metal handle and the swollen or distended look of my upper abdoman. having been to the GP at least three times in the past month i feel embarrassed to go again as i feel i am maybe worrying for now reason/do not want to waste the GP s time. thank you for your time.

Thanks for writing to us.
The change in the color of the urine could be related to a urinary infection or an internal injury of the abdomen. You need to get an MRI scan of the area done to detect the exact cause of your problem for specific treatment.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
