Hi,
If you get infection of tonsils and throat very often then and then you go for operation otherwise not.
Due to follicular tonsils there is always chance of chronic infection remain in the follicles so doctor might have advised operation.So if you do not get infection in your tonsil often,discuss this with your doctor and do accordingly.
