See your doctor: If your tonsils have been removed, i would recommend a follow up visit with your physician or ENT to ensure all tonsilar tissue has been removed, and to check for any abnormalities of the throat and esophagus, such as a weak esophageal sphincter. The 'stones' could be food particles working their way back up due to problems with the muscles of your esophagus.

Tonsil stones: You may still have fissures that are trapping food and other material. See your physician to determine if this is the case.
