Having tonsillitis is not a reason for denial or even delay. As long as you don't have any communicable diseases (e.g. TB, gonorrhea) you shouldn't have any problems with your medical.

Are you looking for a family/ immigration visa, or are you wanting a tourist visa to visit the USA to get the tonsil thing treated?

For a family visa, no issue at all.

Keep in mind that you may want to get it seen to for your own health, and also because it will be much cheaper in the Phils than once you are in the USA.

Tonsillectomy is a really minor procedure; there's nothing to be afraid of. Yes, you will have to be put under general anesthesia but the procedure itself is quick. It is also much cheaper to get it done there in the Philippines than here in the US.

Depending on your age a tonsillectomy can be minor or major. After 30, your recovery can take several weeks. Mostly where you're eating through a straw. Before then though its 1-2 weeks. The closer you are to a teen, the easier it is.
