Tonsils removed as adult - painful or worth it?

I'm 23 and have had multiple strep throat infections which are a total pain in the ass in the past few years. I have no idea where I keep getting the strep from, the people around me are all healthy. I thought maybe it was hookups but even when I don't hookup I just get strep. I've noticed that my tonsils are very large, certainly larger than average, and confirmed by my doctor. No tonsil stones. I'm considering getting removed, but have heard it hurts like hell and I will be nursing scabs in the back of my throat for a week. Some docs have said that removing tonsils won't help, but people I've talked to have said they don't get sore throats/throat infections anymore after getting them removed. My doc said it's up to me. Have any of you gotten your tonsils removed as an adult? Why? How painful was it, how long was the recovery, and was it worth it? Thanks!
