You should be able to back the screw out by keeping constant out pressure on the little flange that is now sucked tight to the wall. Use a little pry bar or even a dull kitchen knife wedged under the flange while you turn the screw out. Keep in mind that the screw may be quite long on a toggle. Once the flange is out far enough just grab it with a plyers and finish the job. The toggle will eventually fall inside the wall. Hope this helps.
