My wife has had her tonsils out and she gets fewer sore throats than me but she gets sick more often.
Here's an explanation of what the tonsils do and why you're still susceptible to strep:
From my doctor, I realize you still get sore throats and can get strep, but from what I've read and been told it's less often and less severe. Mine were enlarged in a normal state, they almost touched. When they swelled from sickness it was rough.
We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.
