In brief: Not Abnormal
That is not the most common course of pos op carpal tunnel surgery, but it happens occassionally.
You will need closer follow up and may need ot hand therapy.

In brief: Possible poor result
Cts surgery is usually safe and successful in over 95%.
Your description may indicate a post-operative infection or scarring, and you need to have a thorough investigation by the surgeon, or even an infectious disease specialist.
