Sick of My Voice

I'm a 25 y/o male and got big tonsils that haven't really given me any health problems. But I do have a particular voice that's been a frequent mock object along my life. Besides, I have to repeat what I say all the time because I can't make myself understood fluently.

Would a tonsil removal improve my voice and make it sound normal?

I went to a phoniatrician but it didn't help at all. Thanks :(

I cannot remark as to whether tonsillectomy would improve your symptoms... only a physician who has personally examined you would be able to determine this. See an Ear, Nose, and Throat physician for a thorough evaluation and treatment recommendations.
Best of luck to you.
