Pain and bruise on breasts, knees and hands after a fall. Difficulty in movement. Rib injury chances?

My 65year old mother had a fall 2 days ago. She is bruised severley across her breasts, knees, hand . Through the night her ribs have caused her immense discomfort and pain on moving, although she can breathe in and out ok. Her hand is bruised on the palm and the back of her hand very discoloured and swollen. A doctor checked her knee and breasts on te day of injury but not her hand or rib. Should i take her along to the doctor again?

Hi, Nic-nell,
Thanks for query.
At this age due to degenerative changes and osteoporotic changes in the bones fracture is common.
So consult your doctor and get her examined.
There is possibility of having fracture in the ribs or hand.
Ok and bye.
