At 52 years old and being diagnosed with 3b colon cancer I thought I was in for the fight of my life. It's been 9 long months of surgery and chemo and I am now starting to feel pretty good. My wife was so supportive in the beginning that I could always feel her comfort and prayers. About 6 months ago, she started making frequent trips back to her home town on a weekly basis. Well after several sleepless nights and a lot of questioning my wife confessed to rekindling an old relationship from when she was 17. She is now 47. She was always a great wife and mother, and it's hard to believe that I now have to deal with a situation like this. I am going to receive psychological help next week to try and deal with all the emotions. I guess the part that hurts the most is that I spent the last nine months making sure my wife was taken care of from many avenues. I joined this group tonight because I just needed someone to talk too.
