Hi,
Removal of tonsils are not advisable as it takes important part in immune system unless there is recurrent tonsillar infection or chronic pus pockets are there on tonsils.
Prevent tonsillar infection by doing warm water antiseptic gargles regularly.
Avoid cold drinks and junk food.
Ok and take care.
