That's a risk you have to be willing to take. You can backup the photos and videos but the chats are no good. Better to start new.
I had this problem after many updates of phones and whatsapp and I always used one Whatsapp backup (over 900k messages), when I scroll up and click on a photo (e.g. a cat) it would show me to a selfie of someone (pretty much another photo).
So I know what's going on. Right now I took the Whatsapp Images and Whatsapp Videos folder and placed it on my microSD so I can still view them in QuickPic, but chat history is gone, left on my computer.
