I have them too, had a laser tonsillectomy 2 years ago but its back now. I wish the doctor would've done a regular tonsillectomy with full removal of my tonsils but he did laser which means only partial removal. The pockets came back and now are deeper 8(. You can try to go to amazon and buy their tonsil tooths tools they sell to help you with removal of them but if they are very terrible and you get alot of throat issues/sicknesses, i would get rid of them! i rather not have my tonsils and normal breath then bad breath and tonsils tbh! they truly are disgusting and horrid smelling, i get problems with them every few months. Also, on a side note, i think the person talking about the emotional issues means that when you have issues going on in your life it makes your system all wacky and can sometimes manifest into other illnesses in the body because your immune levels are low. I had this happen to myself, it seems during the most stressful times in my life, and it could be anything like work, new coworker, friendship dustup, or whatever happen, i notice my breath and Body Odor issues. I think the immune system is effected when emotional stress occurs and it causes physical problems. I haven't suffered with constant bad breath my whole life, there were periods of no issues but i do notice during my stressful times the odors appear. You might not realize this? i mean, going to school, taking tests, worrying about bad breath that is making you isolate and feel worried to speak to anyone may be affecting your stress/immune levels. Good luck! go to a ent and ask about the tonsil stones and removal possibilities?... Till then try to gargle with salt water and view the back of your tonsils and remove what you do see, the tools they sell help you get to the back and poke them out. Never go too deep inside however, you can cause bleeding and infection.
