Thanks for your query.

No , its less likely for the blood in the urine to be related to the hernia she has.

Some of the causes for blood in the urine are :

1)Infection in the urinary tract
2)Kidney stones
3)Injury to any part of the urinary system
4)Bleeding disorders
5)Growths in the urinary tract
6)A narrowing of the opening (stricture)
7)Foods: beets, berries, and rhubarb in large amounts (blood like pigment in urine ).

She may have to get a urine analysis and a Ultrasound scan if needed to rule out causes mentioned above.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any follow up queries I will be available to answer them.
