Re: continuous strep after tonsillectomy please advise very sick

Couple of thoughts:
1) I had this same problem...and ended up getting rheumatic fever about 18 months after my tonsillectomy. I would definately seek help until you find adequate treatment.
2) An infectious disease specialist is your best best at this point for treatment. Also, everyone in your household/close contacts needs to be tested for strep. Someone can be an asymptomatic carrier and be continually giving it to you without you knowing.
Hope this helps!
