I'm not sure what "any other mount points" you think you will lose.
/afs is purely a client-side thing.

The right way to fix this is:
        bring the AFS client down, remove libafs
        clean up the /afs inode
        bring the AFS client back up

AFS is still running ok but I cannot cd into any of the directories because it thinks /afs does not exist.  I cannot get rid of the afs file created because the system still thinks that afs is still mounted there.  Has anything like this ever happened to anyone out there?  If I bring down the services, then get rid of the afs file and recreate /afs directory, will I lose all my other mount points?  Any advice?
