I had ectopic and lost my baby but HGG still rising

Me and my husband found out I was pregnant on the 10th April (around a month gone). As you can imagine very excited to have a second child, but very quickly I began to feel ill, and felt completely different this pregnancy. I felt faint/dizzy and just run down (we joked it was a girl this time), then by 15th I started to bleed lightly, and on the 16th I woke up in agony with rib pain and went to a and e. From then on I was sent on to early pregnancy unit where they conformed I was pregnant. It was ectopic but by the time they confirmed it will blood tests and multiple scans lucky I naturally lost it, but my HGG level carried on going up. So on the 21st I had key hole surgery where the cleaned out my tubes of the remaining blood and had a look inside (luckily no removal of my tubes) and also nothing there. I went back yesterday for a scan and blood test, the scan shows nothing, but my bloods are still going up six days after they done the surgery. I don't know weather to feel joy or cry that I'm going to go through it again. I don't know if there's hope I can have the baby, or even if there's a baby. We haven't slept together since I started bleeding so it can't be a new baby. Has anyone else experience it? I'm still on so much pain meds from the surgery I can't think straight or even carry my 6 month son. Me and my husband can't make sense of what the doctors are saying one minute I'm pregnant, then I've naturally lost it, then I'm not and now I maybe. Has anyone else experienced this positive or negative outcome. I just don't know what to prepare myself for.
