My nexus was bootloader unlocked and rooted while on 4.4.2.
I OTA updated to 4.4.3 and lost my root.
Is there a way to re-root the phone without losing all my data or having to wipe?

Thanks in advance for the info.

Yes, flash a custom recovery or just boot into it and flash the supersu.zip.

Well it seems like for some reason it reverted back to stock android recovery.
Could I still flash a custom recovery and go from there?

The reason is the OTA contained a recovery. You have to flash a recovery as already mentioned earlier in the thread
