Don't try: Medical procedures are not done just because a patient requests them. If your ENT doctor doesn't think tonsillectomy is recommended or required, you should accept that advice, or maybe ask for referral to someone else for a second opinion. You definitely should not keep trying to "convince" the doctor just because you think it might be a good idea.
