What currently does not exist is an established guideline for diagnosing non-avid tumors before surgical ressection and RAI. That doesn't mean that someone that cares with that possibility couldn't try assessing that avidity, with varying degrees of success (with success meaning correctly diagnosing it).

Yes.   And the efficacy of ethanol eblation on cancerous thyroid tumors should be studied as well, so no one ever has to lose a thyroid again.

thyroid cancer utopia.

Most current scientifical facts were once utopias. The diagnostic reality as we stand is that the non-avidity is overlooked, bringing unpleasant surprises down the road. 

Note that diagnosing doesn't usually bring side effects, different from treatments like every non-FDA approved treatment, including the one you mentioned.

Please; make sure you get your rTSH to measure your thyrodean cells.

Actually, my doctor has been alternating exams with rTSH and without. The plan is that the exams with rTSH uncover the full activity of thyrodean cells, while the exams without detect that the cells have not dedifferentiate to not respond to TSH.

rTSH is the acronym for Recombinant TSH. You can see it in articles such as this:
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11729583

As for criticizing non-native speakers of the forum language that sometimes spell things wrongly, you need to ask yourself how important is that to overall comprehension of what is being discussed.
