My daughter wound up being diagnosed with Crohn's 6 years ago (after 7 years of problems). We put her on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) which is much like the diet you have followed (are following). She stayed strictly on the diet for 4 years and finally went off a year ago. She still eats carefully (limits complex carbs, etc...). She has been drug free for 4 years and eats normally.
Of course all of the doctors (Stanford and Lucille Packard Children's Hospital) told us that food has nothing to do with Crohn's and that my daughter would be on drugs for the rest of her life. I truly feel sorry for all those folks who don't bother experimenting with food and diet. It is not a panacea for all, but in our case it has essentially cured my daughter. She is now away at university, living in the dorms and having a normal life.
