Make certain you replaced the correct o2 sensor, the catalytic converter may be at fault here and not the o2 sensor itself.

Oxygen sensors are supposed to be replaced on a regular basis so it wouldn't hurt to replace the other one. Be sure to erase the trouble codes after replacing it because the codes will not reset themselves.

I would suggest taking car to a local auto part store after the sensor is replaced. Most local auto part stores will hook up their scan tool to your vehicle and scan / erase codes free of charge.
