Hi,

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

EKG is a screening cardiac investigation and it should be read and interpreted by a qualified cardiologist.

Further testing with 2D Echo and cardiologist opinion is required before planning surgery for her tonsils.

Hence I advise you to discuss with the primary doctor and plan for further evaluation with the cardiologist and further investigations.

Hope I have answered your query.

Regards.
