Recovered from TIA except for loss of peripheral vision in left eye and the left side of right. Experiencing further sight loss. Is this usual?

In brief: No

It is not normal.
Often visual loss after stroke is permanent or get better over time. If your vision is degrading, you should see your eye doctor as soon as possible.

In brief: Not a TIA

If you still have vision loss beyond a few hours, you did not have a tia, you had a stroke.
If it is getting worse, go directly to the emergency department now. Urgent treatment can stop the loss and maybe reverse it.
