W126 Rear Wheel Bearings Replacement

I know what everyone said, (Don't try and do the rear wheel bearing at home) but I did. I was short of cash and the bearing had totally collapsed and worn into the flange. Let me tell you now, it was back breaking. After doing it I realise I should have bought a good second hand assembly, unbolted the old one, pulled out the handbreak cable, removed the entire assembly and replaced it with the good second hand one.
My problem is I may have tightened the bearing nut up too tight.
I tightened it up pretty much as tight as it would go. There seemed to be a little freeplay in it. Should I loosen it up a touch?
