I had the exact the same problem with a samsung external 500GB. If when you try to list your files you get the "Damage filesysem" error, I think it will very unlikely that you will be able to get your data using testdisk. You can use photorec but that doesn't keep file structure. How I solved mine was by using Zero Assumptions Recovery, that kept my files and structures 100%. Good luck!
