If the thermostat was changed and you seem to still be overheating - the problem most likely lies within the radiator! Small holes in the radiator can become plugged - either from OLD OLD coolant or the sometimes unfriendly "barsleak" which is used sometimes after an intake gasket replacement and/or most commonly a leaky radiator! Radiator is the only other solution

Remove the top hose, unbolt the thermostat housing, remove old themostat and install new unit with new gasket. Replace top hose and fill with coolant. Be sure to re-check the coolant level after start up, beore you drive it anywhere, to eliminate any air pockets in the coolant.

It's highly unlikely that an oil change has caused overheating.It's more than likely a bad thermostat.
