In brief: Possibly

As does not resolve.
But it can remain stable. If you underwent treatment (e.g. Surgery or cath) then you should follow-up regularly with your cardiologist for the rest of your life. They need to monitor the valve function and evaluate for other issues. Please discuss your specific issues with your cardiologist.

Aortic stenosis does not go away. It eventually progresses til surgical or percutaneous - only option.

In brief: Maybe

Usually dilating the stenosis as a baby results in cure, however the stenosis can recur. It's a good idea to have discuss it with your doctor and see how often you should have an ultrasound (echo) of your heart done.
