In brief: Yes
If your kidney stones back up your kidneys enough or cause recurrent infections, you could end up losing enough function to require going on dialysis or receiving a transplant.

In brief: Unusual but possible
Nephrocalcinosis means calcifications in the kidneys.
As with any disease or metabolic problem there are many degrees of severity. This can be a component of a pathology called medullary sponge kidney, but it rarely progress to renal failure. Such patients need their blood calcium and parathyroid hormone checked.
