Hi, tonsillitis post tonsillectomy is a known entity and simply means that the lymphoid tissue left behind during the previous surgery has regrown. A retained infection in the tonsils is a common thing and low grade fever can occur because of that. Please take a short course of antibiotics in consultation with your GP along with hexidine mouth wash. Continue gargling for long after the stopping of antibiotics. HPV positive does not has any significance with your symptoms. HIV test definitely should be done as advised by your doctor as window period can give a negative result initially. So go ahead with it. Otherwise causes of fever need to be investigated and can be in various systems of the body and you need to consult a physician for that who can investigate you thoroughly. Regards
