In brief: It will vary

Aortic stenosis means that the valve that allows blood to go from your heart to the rest of your body is narrowed.
How this affects the rest of your body will depend on how narrow it is; if it's severely narrowed it affect blood supply to the rest of the body and coronaries but more importantly it will make your heart work very hard to pump blood out and this may produce long term damage.

In brief: Substantially

The heart is straining depending on the degree of stenosis.
Left ventricular enlarging hypertrophy but this is not maximally functional. The rest of the body is getting less pulsatille flow and pressure as severity of stenosis increases. Debris from the valve may embolize anywhere _brain and stroke possible.. The stenotic valve is at greater risk for infection angina, syncope, and heart failure.
