Broke humerus bone, internal bleeding, bloated, pain in breasts, shortness of breath. Am I okay?

my 74 year old mother who is on the blood thinner pradaxa had taken a fall 2 weeks ago and broke her humerus bone in her left arm , she was given 2 CAT scans at the hospital and both showed no internal bleeding , however she has been complaining of pain in between her breasts and shortness of breath and her stomach appears to be more bloated to me than usuaul, there is also blood in her urine and when she wipes after using the bathroom, can this be a sign of internal bleeding?

Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

The blood in the urine (hematuria ) can be related to different causes.
It can be of vaginal origin or coming from the urinary tract.

Causes of hematuria include infection, trauma to the tract, blood disorder, kidney or bladder stones, tumors, kidney disease.

The chest pain and shortness of breath is also concerning especially at her age. Though chest pain can be related to any structure in the chest ,at your mothers age heart and lung disease must first be ruled out.
This includes conditions such as heart attacks or pulmonary embolism.

You should consider taking her to her doctor as soon as possible for an assessment.

I hope this helps
