The weakness of bones that your orthopedic doctor commented is due to osteoporosis and this is a age related changes and can occur in all individuals above the age of 45 (in females) and 50 (in males).

But with use of calcium and vitamin D supplements , the progression can be slowed to a certain extent.

You need to continue the supplements life long
