Thumb dislocated

I dislocated my thumb but it is treated and it came to right position. I had X-ray after that and there was no fracture. It's been a week now. The pain has gone and I can do slight movements because it's still swollen a little. I want to know is it a concern that it is still swollen around the joint?
