LVM - Reduce Issue

Dear Team,

I have an 50 GB LV.
I need to reduce 10GB from 50GB.
After the lv reduction I'll have 40GB available space.

First I did un-mount the mount point location.
Executed e2fsck -f /dev/balavg/balalv
After that executed resize2fs /dev/balavg/balalv 10G
Finally ran, lvreduce -L -10G /dev/balavg/balalv
While executing this command, it's asking 50 GB to 40GB. but its reduced 40GB. I am getting only 10GB available space.

Kindly suggest on this.

Your resize2fs command is setting the size to 10G. You can now just resize again to max space by leaving off the size.
