Brown discharge post breast reduction
Brown discharge usually represents some old blood from surgery that has liquefied and drains out but 10 days is a little early for this. You seem to be very active so I doubt anything too bad is going on, also since the amount of drainage is low. I would touch bases with your plastic surgeon to be on the safe side.
Early post op, some advices :
On the other hand, generally to avoid the normal p.o. swelling, I recommend to limit the arms movement for two weeks.
Also it's not advisable to carry weight and take the antiinflamatory painkillers drugs.
Finally, I recommend you always use a therapeutic bra.
