Can You Get Tonsillitis If You Have No Tonsils?

No, it is not likely that one will get tonsillitis if you have had your tonsils removed. However, you are prone to getting throat infections like strep, which, if untreated, could affect your heart. Strep is more or less similar to tonsillitis only without the tonsils.
