Sorry Mr. Oinksalot, but you are just in remisssion, you are not cured. I once thought I knew it all too, and stopped taking my meds. I enjoyed a nearly 20 year remission and ate anything I wanted and had no symptoms of the disease. Well let me tell you, I didn't know everything like I thought I did. My 20 year remission ended with me having a emergency resection due to a 12 inch stricture at my ileum/cecum area. While I was busy getting on with my life not thinking about
having Crohns, the Crohns was still in there doing its damage without me even knowing it. This disease will continue to do damage on a microscopic level if you are not on meds. I will never be without meds again, and you will find many others have learned the lesson the hard way I did too. Yeah it may be quiet for awhile, but it NEVER goes away forever. So I am glad to hear you are in "remission", but I can 100% guarantee, you are NOT cured. JMHO
