Change Oil Filter later date?, oops

After thinking I already had a socket to fit the oil filter and draining the oil
I did not have one. Can I go back in like 2 days and just change the filter?
Since it's up top don't see losing to much oil

Thanks

Yes
Its much better than the alternative. In fact, I have read some oil pundits who recommend that if you run your synthetic oil for long duration, like 10k miles, that you change the oil filter at 5k miles.

Virtually none. The filter naturally drains when the engine is stopped and the filter comes out from above. So all you 'lose' is what has soaked into the filter paper, which isn't a lot.
