    First, it needs punctuation. And even though the person likely means the same thing now as before, I would use the past for "mean", which, of course, is "meant". Other than these two things, your sentence is correct.

    1. Really, you said this before, but I didn't catch what you meant till this moment.
    2. Really -- you said this before, but I didn't catch what you meant till this moment.
    3. Really? You said this before, but I didn't catch what you meant till this moment.
    I would say there is more than one possibility for punctuation with "really". It seems to me that "really" could be a yes-no question, indicated by one's tone of voice.
