In brief: Yes

Wegener's will not go away.
It might take time but will ultimately cause severe lung and kidney problems, and death. Treatment can be very effective.

In brief: Yes

Wegener's is 100% fatal untreated, and it is not gentle or fast.
Thankfully, the vast majority of people with wegener's get excellent results with today's treatments, and eventually the treated disease often remits.
