Thanks for your query on HealthCareMagic.
nodes (nodes as mentioned by you) take time to resolve once they get enlarged. The ENT doctor is correct in not removing the tonsils. It is always good to wait and see the response over a certain time frame. Under these circumstances it is advisable to wait and watch instead of having another opinion.
I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.
Wishing your daughter an early recovery.
With best wishes.
