As Yogi Berra said "Making predictions is difficult - especially about the future"...!
Firstly I presume you do mean repair, not replacement? Aortic valve repair is an uncommon operation: Most people who have aortic valve surgery end up with a replacement not a repair, so few people have much experience of the durability of aortic valve repairs.
Secondly, I would need a lot more information about your valve before making a comment, and even then would be hesitant to make a prediction! Does it leak? Is it narrowed? Etc etc.
The important thing is to see a cardologist at least once a year to have an echo and monitor the degree of narrowing of the valve, if any, the extent to which it leaks, if at all, and how the function of the valve is affecting the heart muscle. Your cardiologist will be able to advise you when a replacement is necessary.
