Thank you for asking
Fistula history with discharge indicate the fistula recurrence and needs a repair.infection and abscess can also be a discharge cause.please seek a general surgeon and let them have a detailed look at the issue and take a detailed clinical history and examine you for the bowel issued like incontinence and fistulogram etc.also i would advise an endoscopy to rule out any bleeding cause of this so called brown discharge.
You need a detailed clinical correlation and management .Please visit a general surgeon and let them take care of you.
I hope it helps. Take good care of yourself and don't forget to close the discussion please.
