Your child is getting repeated attacks of tonsillitis field which the ultimate treatment is surgical removal.
Your doctor is right in recommending surgery.
Once this acute phase is ver and antibiotic course is complete,you can plan for surgery.
There is nothing to worry and you can go ahead with the surgery.

Hi, Rao,
Thanks for query,
Recurrent attack of tonsillitis may require surgery as there is always infection remains in tonsils.
And for adenoids surgery is required.
Ok and bye.
