@lioness Thank you!

As far as I know, they don’t typically do a tonsillectomy anymore unless as a last resort, as the benefits usually do not outweigh the risks. I was told last year that, as an adult, I am not enough of a priority for my ENT to even consider removing them. I tend to get strep once to twice a year, and he said no less than six annual infections would he consider removing the pesky things.
