Welcome to HCM. All of the above except rolling back of tongue could be due to enlarged tonsils itself. The E.N.T. surgeon who is going to operate on the child is the right person to decide whether sleep test is necessary. You have to inform him about all these happenings of your child during sleep and if he feels necessary he will advise you accordingly. Wishing your child all the best and speedy recovery.
