My nickname is taken

So, I haven't played LOL for quite some time and when I downloaded it again and logged in with my mail and all that, it showed me that my nickname was taken and I had to put another one and I did BUT when I logged in all my items, my level and my friends were gone even though my mail was the same I used before. Is there a way I can take my nick and my old account back please??
