Brief Answer:
Please refer to the detailed answer below.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

After going through the medical details provided by you would like to tell you that, if the patient is asymptomatic as of now then just medication need to be continued.

But the ultimate thing is that at last valve replacement will be needed at some stage if the aortic regurgitation will progress or the patient will develop symptoms.

I hope this information will answer your query.

Kind Regards
Dr Bhanu Partap
