Tonsil stones: They may be coming from residual tonsil tissue that was not removed, or possibly from the lingual (tongue) component of tonsillar tissue that is not removed in a standard tonsillectomy. I would recommend you see an ENT who can evaluate you for residual tonsillar tissue and perform endoscopy to look at the base of the tongue.
