Oral sex post tonsillectomy

Patient : I am 14 days post tonsillectomy and I wanted to know whether or not it was safe to swallow semen. I performed oral sex on my bf yesterday and he got offended because I didn't swallow and I always have. I told him I was concerned about my throat becoming infected and he acted even more offended as if I told him his semen were toxic and asking me what do I think is in it blah blah. At the end of the day I just want to know whether I was correct in my presumption that my throat could become infected if I did swallow it or is it safe? I would appreciate any help.
