My first suggestion would be, do not trust what the dash gauge is reporting until you can confirm the coolant temp.
You can use special cap with a built in thermometer.
Something like this …

Now considering how bad the cooling system was by your description.
It is possible you have a possible blockage in the radiator, heater core or both.
You could try to power flush the system.

Also make certain that there is no airflow blockage.
