Thanks for query,
Enlarge tonsils are not necessary to remove unless there is recurrent infection.
problem for snoring and breathe from mouth may be due to nasal polyp or deviated nasal septum.
Consult ENT sp and get her examined.

Thanks for posting your query.

Recurrent tonsillitis, that is infection more than 5 times a year is of concern and they are suggested for tonsillectomy.

If the breathing difficulty is more then she would require surgery.

Consult a ENT doctor and intimate regarding snoring and difficult breathing.

Hope I have answered your query.

Wishing you good health.
