From my understanding, your SD card seemed to be really damaged by your rude battery extraction. The reformatting may somehow help you fix this card problem. But, as to the pictures stored on this phone card, add no more stuff there and also do not format this card temporarily. Search over the internet and select SD card recovery software (like Recuva, 4Card Recovery, PhotoRec and more) to rescue your wondered pictures back.
And then, format this card to see whether your card could work functionally as before.
Never try to use your card so rudely again and make data backups all the time.
