Can you tell me if on each side and I had my tonsils and adenoids removed about 2-3 years ago so can it be tonsillitis?

In brief: Not usually

Tonsils and adenoids are usually removed at same time.
Tonsils usually do not grow back. Adenoids not infrequently can regrow related to incomplete removal of all adenoid tissue.
