Lower abd pain, painful bowel movements

Hello, I am female in my early 40's suffering from chronic abdominal and back pain.  I have been having severe lower abdominal pain/cramping before having a bowel movement. The BM's are also very large and painful, sometimes causing rectal bleeding. What can I do to help this other than more fiber, drinking more water? I am also having frequent UTI's and am so sick of taking antibiotics. Could the abdominal problems be causing the frequent UTI's? I will also add that I have had a complete hysterectomy 4yrs ago, with a partial ovary being left because it had become attached to my colon. I have never heard of this before and wonder if this could also be causing some of my problems. Any advice you can offer will great, ty.
