Driving with stuck EGR valve.

My truck was in the shop today for a routine maintenance and as usual they hooked it up to the scanner to see if it had any codes. Well sure enough it was reading a bad EGR valve and the guy pulled it and the o-rings were worn and it was covered in soot to the point it was stuck open. Is it safe to drive my vehicle like this? My mechanic said it was but I wanted to double check with the fourms.
He did however unplug the valve.

Any thoughts?

Ps. I have a person lined up to install a delete kit but I'm trying to decide if I should do oil cooler as well.

Clean it and replace the o-rings until you get the delete kit. I don't know that it's unsafe, bit it won't run right.

That's what they did. The o-rings aren't even for an EGR valve. They had to find a temporary fix as I'm getting the delete here in a couple
of weeks. Here are the kits I'm considering.
