      I'm not sure in which language "thyrodean" is a word but it is rhTSH; Recombinant human TSH. FDG-PET is the professionally recommended imaging in the face of rising TG and negative radioiodine whole body scans. FDG is ultimately sugar.

          You can't apply some sweeping claim about the efficacy of I-131 to a single clinical study where the purpose was testing an experimental drug.  Anyone can look at the professional guidelines and see exactly which research is used to form the recommendations. And the research is far more varied than one single clinical study.

            All one needs to do is look at the professional guidelines to see the ACTUAL evidence used in the recommendation for/against I-131 ablation. As far as I'm concerned, your ancedotal "discussions" with your doctors holds zero credibilty.  That's my opinion. Everyone else; YMMV.

              That must have been the person removed from the study for violating study protocol.

                You only need to maintain a distance of 6 feet, your husband does not need to move out of the house. Good luck with your ablation!

                  You are absolutely presenting the finding of one clincial trial falsely.  That clinical study was about the experimental drug, not RAI.

                      FNA?  The clinical trial didn't have anything to do with FNAs.
