I had my tonsils until i was in my 20's. I had chronic strep and tonsilitis. So bad that my tonsils would swell shut in my throat and i would not even be able to swallow my spit! I had them removed, and my ent said that he had never seen such infection in the tonsils. At the time, i was not dx w/ UC and had not had symptoms from it yet, so i was not on 6mp at the time (am now). Most doctors require strep/tonsilitis 3x in one yr before they will remove them, but if it's a source of infection for her, they should come out.
good luck w/ the anitbiotics, have her gargle w/ warm, salt water atleast 3x a day.
