Well, you may lose some of the work you did, but there is a way to get back most of it. Go to the directory where the map is stored and find the latest backup file (identified by the suffix .BAK). Rename the current .ogz to something else, then change the .BAK suffix to ogz. That will give you the map as it was the last time you saved.
