So i just had my tonsils removed 8 days ago.

So i just had my tonsils removed 8 days ago. The doctor said i would cough up the scabs or they would fall off in pieces. But the scabs appeared to be white all over the area and i couldn’t see any black spots, but i just coughed up a big hard black chunk of what I’m assuming is scab. But I’m not sure since my whole throat is white?

I have tonsil stones and they are pretty bad. I tried removing them a few weeks ago when they became extremely unpleasant. I ended up irritating the tonsils so bad that they bled a long time. A few days later I developed a sore throat, swollen tonsils and some more stones. Now, a couple weeks later, I have swollen lymph nodes in my groin. I have one that comes and goes in my armpit too. My question is... Could these tonsil stones, along with all of the irritation I caused to the tonsils, have caused an infection that my body is now trying to fight off? Or could my defenses that the tonsils deal with have been down and allowed somthing in?
