Hi. She needs to see a doctor and get an exam, blood work, and a urinalysis to start with. This could be nothing more than a bladder infection requiring antibiotics but this could indicate a kidney problem or even kidney or bladder cancer. It really isn't something she should just wait and see if it goes away
