Chances are your oil cooler is bad (plugged) also, which is typically what causes the EGR cooler to fail. This sounds most likely since you say you just flushed the coolant system a week ago.
This is one of the reasons I installed a Dieselsite coolant filter, is to try to keep the system clean.
I am not aware of any way to bypass the EGR cooler.
