Question Too much DE added to filter

I cleaned the filter and seems to have added too much DE. I went by instructions on the box -- it recommended 7 lbs for 48 sq. ft. After restart, some DE was returned in the pool. Checked filter mfg instr. -- it said 4.8 lbs.
Will it dissipate or return to the filter by itself? Will shocking help? Really don't want to disassemble the filter again
Thanks for any suggestions.

Backwash the filter a little and vac up excess DE will catch in filter.

No shockng will not help nor will it dissipitate.
