You should have them replaced the thermostat at the same time they replaced your radiator. Also, I would have them replaced the sensor that is attached to the radiator for the cooling fan. All three components work together to keep your engine cool. It sounds like your thermostat is stuck in the open position. Therefore, keeping antifreeze flowing through your engine. Also, not allowing your engine to reach it's normal temperature. You can test this by cracking up your engine and leave it running for five minutes. After five minutes your engine should be getting close to the mid way point.
