About prognosis:

The 'prognosis' of Crohn's disease usually refers to the likely outcome of Crohn's disease. The prognosis of Crohn's disease may include the duration of Crohn's disease, chances of complications of Crohn's disease, probable outcomes, prospects for recovery, recovery period for Crohn's disease, survival rates, death rates, and other outcome possibilities in the overall prognosis of Crohn's disease. Naturally, such forecast issues are by their nature unpredictable.
