If you lost only the juices then I would seal it back and let it continue for the rest of the time. You are letting it go for 10 days? right. Oh Yea welcome to SMF There tramp. Can you please swing into Roll Call and intrduce yourself and your equipment too.

I f you are dry curing that little loss wont hurt anything .

 do not add more TQ. If you were wet curing just rinse , soak and cook it as a pork loin.

What Mark & Eman said.

Losing some juice won't hurt.

Some drain the bags on purpose. I wouldn't do that, but like we said, losing some won't hurt.

Did you flip it during those first 4 days?

Definitely don't add more cure. You should be fine.
