Get tonsils removed

What are the possibilities of a doctor removing your tonsils if you get strep frequently but you treat it at home and there are no doctor records saying how often you get it or how severe.

Hi,
How are you? Indications for tonsillectomy may include severity of the symptoms and frequency of infection. Sometimes, it is not necessary to document repeatedly positive streptococcal cultures, since the goal
is usually to improve quality of life also. It is best that you discuss this with your attending physician for proper evaluation. Take care and do keep us posted.
