I was deleting some photos from my iphone 3gs before syncing with itunes.  My PC was updating the itunes software at the time and restarted.  Now my phone wont' turn off and just shows the picture of the usb cord and the itunes icon.  When I open itunes, it says, "itunes has detected an iphone in recovery mode. You must restore this phone before it can be used with itunes." 


By restoring, will I lose everything on the phone? 


My phone is useless and I am panicing since this is the only phone in the house.  There is no way to call anyone to ask for help with this, so someone please answer soon.

iPhone 3GS, iOS 5.1.1
