This much looks like everything was ok, but the server answer somehow got
lost. This sometimes happens. I'm not sure if it is a server or a JOSM
error (or both?).

Call the update function from first menu (e.g. Update changed). This
should update everything relevant (save before) and reducing the number of
changes. New elements are probably not detected properly. But at least
after the update you can verify if your work was uploaded completely or
You can also use the changeset editor of JOSM to review your changeset
Or you download the area (after saving state) and verify if you changes
In case of a partial upload you need to use validator to fix the
duplicates (everything you newly created).
