Broken Hand - Removed Cast 2 weeks early

I broke my hand -- 5th metacarpel? (pinky). Got a cast put on, but took it off 2 weeks after. Was supposed to stay on for 4 weeks.

I'm in the 3rd week, being careful not to bend and move it much...just needed that damn cast off.

Is this something others have done or experienced? Did the hand/finger still heal somewhat ok? My pinky hovers a little lower than it used to.
