Our expert says:
Make sure your tests have been evaluated by an ENT surgeon. I am unsure as to the nature of your complaint, as removing the tonsils have clearly not sorted the problem. A possibility is that the Lingual tonsils are playing a role in this case, as these tonsils at the back of the tongue and are generally not removed during a standard tonsillectomy. Swollen glands for an extended period of time is abnormal, and a cause should be found, your MRI scan should give valuable information in this regard. If all this is negative, I suggest the opinion of a physician, as systemic causes should be excluded, such as Diabetes. Discuss this with your ENT, as the symptoms are clearly causing you distress.
