In brief: Not necessay
Following a tonsillectomy, a septic crust covers the surgically exposed tonsillar fossa or raw area that is exposed to the outside air. Inasmuch as the oral cavity is not sterile, the patient's normal immune response is all that is necessary to heal the raw surface.
I would think that chloraseptic would cause more burning. However it would be safe to use.

In brief: Yes
You can use it but the area should heal up shortly on its own without it.
