It is unlikely that you have really lost all of the data based on what you
said you did. You do want to be careful about what you do now so that you
don't make things worse while trying to fix things.
The rescue disk suggestion is probably the way to start.
If you are going to try to do something dangerous, you may want to consider
pulling one of the disks. This has its own set of risks though and you would
want to make sure if you got things back, that you back stuff up before
trying to add the disk back into the raid array.
