In brief: Possibly
Many patients with eating disorders continue to have some residual sx.
They learn to keep these sx in check. Those who do not keep the sx in check may have a recurrence. Continuing "maintainence therapy" or checking in with your counselor or a new counselor when new stressors arise or when sx begin to return is the most helpful.
