Here is what I would do:

rename your corrected log file to something like FIXED.LOG
(if it's a CW contest, add CW TONE = 0 to your .CFG file)*
At the command prompt, type TR READ FIXED.LOG

TR READ will read in the QSOs from the FIXED.LOG file, and 
recompute dupes, band totals, QSO points, and multipliers, 
resulting in a newly-computed score, and a fresh .LOG file
that you can then use in POST.  It actually reworks the 
contest, and is fun to watch.  You can learn more about
TR READ in the manual.

*Otherwise, TR will send the CW of the sent portions of every
QSO to the PC speaker.
