kissing tonsils

I WOULD BE VERY GREATFULL IF YOU COULD ANSWER MY QUESTION.

MY CHILD IS 3 AND A HALF YEAR OLD. IN APRIL 2007 HE GOT SICK FOR TEN DAYS. IT WAS VIRAL. NO ANTIBIOTICS WERE GIVEN TO HIM. HE COULD NOT EAT ONLY DRINK. AFTER HIS SICKNESS EVERYTHING RETURNED TO NORMAL. HE IS EATING VERY WELL NO FEVER NOW, NOTHING AT ALL A VERY NORMAL CHILD BUT WHEN WE LOOKED AT HIS THROAT WE SAW THAT HIS TONSILS ARE A LITTLE RED AND ENLARGED, ALMOST KISSING TONSILS. THIS IS WHAT HIS DOCTOR SAID. WHEN HE SLEEPS, SOMETIMES IT SEEMS HE IS BREATHING FROM HIS MOUTH OR SNORING. THIS IS ONLY WHAT I AM SEEING UNUSUAL WITH HIM. NOTHING ELSE AT ALL.

THE PROBLEM IS WITH ME, BECAUSE I AM TOO MUCH WORRIED WHEN I THINK THAT HE COULD NEED AN OPERATION. I THINK OF HIM ALL THE DAY. I AM UNHAPPY WITH MY LIFE BECAUSE I AM WORRIED A LOT.

COULD YOU PLEASE HELP ME AND TELL ME IF IT IS POSSIBLE FOR KISSING TONSILS OR ALMOST KISSING TONSILS TO REMAIN LIKE THIS FOR YEARS WITHOUT MAKING ANY PROBLEM AND WITHOUT BEING REMOVED, AND AFTER THEY SHRINK AND RETURN TO NORMAL SIZE?

WHEN SHOULD I WORRY?

I WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR ANSWERING ME THE SOONEST POSSIBLE.

THANKS A LOT
