After Whipple?

HI there- my stepdad (72 yrs old) just had the whipple procedure. All of the organ margins taken were clear but 5 of 11 regional lymph nodes that were removed came back malignant. They are saying they believe the cancer is all gone but want to do 4 months of chemo followed by 2 months of radiation as preventative measures.

I'm reading a lot about immunotherapies and am wondering if anyone has tried anything like that? I'm not sure if that is even an option for this case, but figured it is worth asking. Also, if anyone has any experience with the chemo/radiation after Whipple, please share!
