Tecentriq along with chemo and radiation..is it too toxic?

Hi, my father had been dx with SCLC in January and underwent the cycles of carboplatin+ etoposide + tecentriq (immunotherapy) with fairly good response. Now his onco team are planning to do radiation (IGRT) along with carbo+ etoposide. 
They are saying adding tecentriq to the regime will be too toxic. Has anyone undergone/going through chemo+immunotherapy+ radiation simultaneously ? 

Prompt response would be of great help

Hament,

Welcome here.

Although a lung cancer survivor, I do not have immunotherapy experience and I'm not a doctor so I wouldn't have an answer about the toxicity of tecentriq with conventional chemotherapy and radiation.

Many here have immunotherapy experience and I'm sure will provide an answer.

Stay the course.
