I'm sorry it stopped working. Second line chemo is usually Jevtana, and sometimes carboplatin.

I’m so sorry to hear it isn’t working. There are other che is out there that may work better. When it didn’t work for Chuck they put him on Zytiga. For him, it worked. He has been on Xtandi now for almost three years. You are not alone in this, we are all there with you. Take care. Charline.
