Dear Brian
Bone is a living tissue and keeps on replacing itself until you die. He may have meant that the bones are a bit porous and I suggest you have it checked out by a specialist physician (rheumatologist) who can do the necessary tests and put you on the correct medication if you have chronic gout.
