I have gone through your query.
According to my best of knowledge, if your child suffering from this disease frequently and hampered his routine activity then there is need to go for surgery otherwise conservative management is better for tonsillitis.
Surgery is not a big issue for tonsil and adenoid, if the disease is frequent i.e. recurrent disease 7 episodes in one year then definitely go for tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy.

Wish your child good health
