Thank you for your query.
ectopic pregnancy leads to hemoperitoneum - collection of blood in the peritoneal cavity.
After 8 days of surgery, the drain should now be removed ideally.
If it is still draining red fluid, there could still be some collection inside the abdomen
This is best assessed by a n ultrasound.
I do not understand reason for doing ATT unless the fluid culture shows presence of tuberculosis.
You should get a second opinion, as she is having several other problems.
take care
Repeat pregnancy depends on patency of the left fallopian tube.
