Maybe: This may be some stiffness , since you haven't been moving/ bending it.Gently try to get it moving daily, little by little.If hurts too much or not slowly getting better, return to md.

Dislocation: This is fairly normal after this type of injury and immobilization. You just need to work on range of motion or see a hand therapist to regain motion and function. May take some time.
