There is no way a distant forum can answer this -- each case is different and a lot more information is needed to even guess at the answer. Discuss with your doctors.

Crohn’s disease goes through periods of activity, when there are symptoms and active lesions can be found on the bowel alternating with dormant stretches when mucosa heals with and/or without treatment and no disease specific symptoms are noticed. Your gastroenterologist remains your best reference going forward.

It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see a doctor, especially a GI specialist. Crohn's is treatable and it is imperative for you to consult a specialist.
Wish you good health!
