Should i go to the orthopedic?

I dislocated my pinky couple weeks ago, went to the ER right after. Honestly didn't really feel any serious pain, despite how BAD my pinky looked. The doctor went ahead and pulled it back into place. He told me everything looks fine based off of the X-Ray. He told me to go see a orthopedic asap, along with a paper with medicine to get.  However, i didnt go. 5 days later, i try to move my pinky and everything feels fine as far as movement goes. I do feel pain in the joints of my pinky, but it feels like as if its jammed, therefore it doesnt feel like anything serious. I can almost bend my pinky fully. So my question is, should i still go to the orthopedic, despite how well my pinky feels?
