Have you tried to edit the file in Photoshop as a Smart Object? That is also an option in the popup menu when you choose Edit in...

I believe there is a bug logged on that to fix. Your photoshop edit wasn't lost and the bug is that Lightroom is still holding on to a stale cached version of the negative and wasn't aware of the new update is available (Lr needs to swap out the pixels in this case because it is a destructive edit). One workaround (before the bug is fixed) is to toggle to the next few (2~4) and comes back to the same photo, it would heal itself. Or you can relaunch Lr.
