I am a 26 year old female and got my tonsils removed on December 20, 2012. Today is January 22, 2013 and my right tonsil is growing back. Any advice? Panic?

I think that panic would not be appropraite, but seeing your ENT -- the one that removed your tonsils -- would be prudent. Tonsils are lymph tissue and sometimes, it can regenerate a bit; but not to the size of your original tonsils.
