I had tonsillitis on May 17th for around 6 days,

Patient : I had tonsillitis on May 17th for around 6 days, I couldn't swallow hardly, my family doctor gave me a prescription and within few days after it went away. But a week later (May 31st) it came back way worse than before, I couldn't eat or barely, barely swallow and I was having troubles breathing. I went to the hospital (June 2nd) and they gave me steroids to help but it still hurts a lot. How many more times do I have to have tonisitis before they will consider removing them? (Also I am only 16 years old)
