you do not say what code was in the ecu, but before buying a new sensor do a few more tests.
With the cat hot, if the post-cat oxygen sensor signal is fluctuating in synch with the upstream one then the cat is gone and a code appears.
sample the exhaust gases to confirm cat failure?
did they measured the in and out cat temperatures?
