I'm 16 and constantly getting large tonsil stones. Every time I remove them my crypts seem to get larger. What should I do beside removing tonsils?

In brief: Not much

If you have a bad taste in the mouth and a bad odor to your breath, tonsillectomy will cure the problem. I do not think you can do anything to make the crypts of the tonsils smaller. This problem is certainly an indication for tonsillectomy.
Consult an ENT surgeon for an opinion.
