Horrible throat and neck pain from tonsil stones

I have had tonsil stones for about 4 months that I've known about... The pain in my throat started right after delivering my daughter in June. I went to Urgent Care and they told me I had strep throat. After 10 days on amoxicillin I was still in a lot of pain, I called the doctor and she prescribed augmentin. I finished the full 10 days of that and still my throat and neck hurt very bad. So I went to my Ent convinced that I had throat cancer, she told me I had tonsil stones. so I bought a water pick and daily pick at my tonsils with Q tips to get them out. I get more every day and have a lot of pain in the back of my neck and in my throat, my tonsils are also very red and inflamed. I feel like this problem is never going to go away and I can't afford the tonsillectomy right now. Any suggestions I would greatly appreciate thank you!
