if your new field is not pulled with the standard fn_get_product() then you will need to use a 'addons/my_changes/controllers/admin/products.post.php' controller.
You would extract the current product data via:
    $product_data = Registry::get('view')->get_var('product_data');
    // $product_data['new_field'] = db_get_field("SELECT new_field FROM ?:products WHERE product_id=?i", $_REQUEST['product_id']);
    // Then write it back to it's visible to the template
    Registry::get('view')->assign('product_data', $product_data);
