hello there.
tonsil stones are known as tonsiloliths.
based on your history you have chronic tonsillitis. and since you get this problem again and again, you could visit a ENT Specialist and discuss with him about removing your tonsils.
removing tonsils won't be harmful in anyway. you can survive without tonsils. don't be scared of the operation its a simple procedure.
all the best.
