In brief: Probably
People with crohn's disease bad enough to get surgery often have a lot of inflammation and poor nutrition due to the intestinal inflammation.
Removing that usually improves bowel function and allows your body to use energy for activity instead of fighting abnormal inflammation.

In brief: If in remission
Eventually it should but it may take some time to restore your health after the surgery and provided your crohn's remains in remission with medical treatment.
