Taking antibiotics for throat infection. Do I have scar tissue or abscess? Done tonsillectomy

Hi. I am 40 years old, I female, and about ten years ago had a pta and it went undiagnosed for a long time. I had a tonsillectomy . Then I went to mayo clinic to have a revision tonsillectomy where they took more tonsil tissue out. 10 years later I am having some kind of throat infection that I take antibiotics for about once a month. I wonder if I may have scar tissue or another sort of abcess somewhere else.
