A few years after mitral valve repair and not on betablockers occasionaly have a body massage and hands get pins and needles temporary is this normal?

Paresthesiae. If the only time you experience pins and needle sensations in your hands is during a body massage, I suspect that the symptoms are positional and nerves are being impinged at the wrist with the arms outstretched or bent. However if these parasthesiae occur at other times, a carpal tunnel syndrome is likely. A hand surgeon or neurologist are best qualified to evaluate and advise you about this sym.

After mitral valve repair with annuloplasty ring and health is good with trivial regurgitation is there any evidence in betablockers for life? Jay

No. I suspect you were put on a beta blocker after surgery for atrial arrhythmias (especially atrial fibrillation) which is very common in the first few months after mitral repair surgery. But once you're fully healed (6 months), if you're not having any dysrhythmia and your blood pressure is controlled, you won't need beta blockers any longer. If your BP is up, a different drug could be used anyway. Read more...
