Question remission aml

hi
i am new to this forum. i currently am in remission from being diagnosed with aml in aug. of 2009. went thru extensive chemo and bmb. doctor said i am in remission now. what are the chances of relaps? is it true that aml is not cured without a bmt? a friend of mine told me that relaps is a definate it is time will tell. do i go on feeling normal with this in the back of my mind until it happens again? do most people relaps within 6 mo. or a year?
sorry so many questions, just concerned. if anyone out there can answer, please answer even if just few of my questions
thanks
ashley
