Hello Radost - I too have had the ropes coming out for almost 3 years now. I have posts on CureZone here at: http://curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=2095050#I There are a lot of folks with ropes/mucus/strands on CureZone so I developed a questionnaire to see if we could start to connect the dots. It is linked here: http://curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=2104311#I I don't know what they are but am feeling better as they are leaving my body. Thanks for sharing your experience. Hope you and your family feel better soon. Kiki K.
