I can't consider this normal or a satisfactory result. If you're not getting satisfactory care or advice from your surgeon, I recommend consulting a hand surgeon at a department of hand surgery at a university hospital near you.

Would not say any of this is normal or the usual outcome. Definitely get a second opinion. An EMG study will reveal location and severity of your problems
