Welcome to HW,
Crohn's can be a very insidious disease. It can smolder it's way along over years causing damage, and ultimately serious damage, but not always obviously or overtly.
Getting a treatment plan and a maintenance medication that can keep this disease regulated is of the utmost importance particularly regarding living with it for the long term.
Medications have come so far just in the last 10 or so years. Almost everyone that makes this transition is apprehensive and even afraid when they start reading about side effects and such. Once you make that step though, you will realize that you can live a perfectly normal life. Not trying to say that there are no risks at all to medications, but just that most once they get on the right track do quite well.
Keep us posted and good luck going forward.
