I ended up in Accident & Emergency with tonsillitis, should I have surgery?

Last year I ended up in Accident & Emergency with tonsillitis. I was unable to swallow my own saliva and was having difficulty breathing as my adenoids had swollen. I have has tonsillitis once already this year and have recently been suffering with tonsil stones. I currently have again, very swollen and sore tonsils. Should I be starting to consider surgery? I would say I have these episodes at least 3 times a year.

According to history I suggest you to go for surgery as frequency of tonsillitis is high.
