Default Banana leaves are not growing correctly

I have an Orinoco banana and at first after cutting back the P stem new growth came out after only about 6 hours. So I thought all is well, however the second leaf is all ragged and there is only stem no foliage on this leaf. It looks like the foliage got torn off or ripped off as it grew out from the P stem. It this normal after cutting back the P stem? A new leaf is now emerging and it looks better but still thin and not quite right but better. Will the banana grow out of this problem eventually or should I cut it back more. I already cut it back twice. The first time the very first leaf got stuck so I cut it back again and now the leaves are emerging but ragged looking.
