Options when immunotherapy not available
My husband currently is undergoing 10 sessions of chemotherapy, for aggressive metastasis PC, after various treatments for PC for 10 years. One infusion drug to follow, every 6 weeks. What happens next? Any other options? He does trust his doctor, whose concern at start of chemo was to get PSA as low as possible (currently 28, after 4 sessions). Immunotherapy is not an option for him. Should he search for a clinical trial? Otherwise in good health, age 65. Thank you.

Was radiation not an option? Did he see a radiation oncologist?
