Oh lol .I say she. Or he inthinknshe is a she .I could be wrong
Replacement of legs via molting can often take more than one molt to fully regenerate.

Female tarantulas live longer and can molt more often than males. Once a male reached it's ultimate molt it is done molting and lives out the remainder of its life in search of females to inseminate.

In this case, male or female, can matter as to whether your P striata will be able to molt enough to fully regenerate it's limbs before it's ultimate molt.

Regardless, if your T is able to eat and get around without issue then the legs are of little significance, other than the Ts visual appearance to others.
