[xhmqrgrr] If you smash a proton, does it heal?

Smash a proton into something that is not an anti-proton.  Eventually, after all the high energy particles have decayed, are you guaranteed to be left with a proton again?  Seems yes, as that is the only stable particle that conserves the original charge and quark number.  Does quark number need to be conserved?
