I accidentally deleted my word document without saving it. Does anyone know how to retrieve it?

It’s not in my trash.
The only place I can find it is in my recents but then it says
“Can't open The work of breathing
and respiratory malignancies
This document has been deleted or is
not currently accessible.”

Thanks in advance
