I am afraid that any work you may have done since the last save is lost and not retrievable.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

I personally always thought that there was a document recovery feature for MS Office. I do not know exactly how it works, maybe you should look into that before giving up all hope.

I believe that only works with documents that were saved then deleted. I believe what the original post referred to was unsaved work. It was still in RAM went it was lost so there was not a permanent record on the hard drive to be recovered.
I may be wrong though.

Some versions of M$ Office have an autosave function, if this was turned on, you can still use this On the Microsoft Windows Start menu, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Office Tools, and then click Microsoft Office Application Recovery.
In the Application list, click the program or document that is not responding.
Do one of the following:
To attempt to recover the files you were working on, click Recover Application or Restart Application.
If you just want to close the program, and lose recent changes to the files, click End Application.
The error that caused the problem can be reported to Microsoft for use in improving future versions of the program. Click Report problem or Don't report problem.
Open the Office or Office family program.
Review the files listed in the Document Recovery task pane (task pane: A window within an Office application that provides commonly used commands. Its location and small size allow you to use these commands while still working on your files.), and decide which to keep.

If a file has [Recovered] in the title it is usually a file that contains more recent changes than a file with [Original] in the title.

If you want to view what repairs were made to a file, point to the file in the Document Recovery task pane, click the arrow next to the file's name, and then click Show Repairs.
If you want to review the versions that were recovered, open all of the versions and save the best one.
For each file you want to keep, point to the file in the Document Recovery task pane, click the arrow next to the file's name, and then do one of the following:
To work with the file, click Open.
To save the file, click Save As, and then enter a name for the file. By default, the file is saved in the same folder as the original file. If you use the same name as the original file, the original is overwritten. When you see a message asking whether you want to replace the existing file (with the changes you made up to the last time you saved the file), click Yes.
When you have opened or saved all of the files you want to keep, click Close in the Document Recovery task pane.
The name says it all -- 59 and holding permanently

If you have deleted it its possible to recover it using recovery software
But if you want to go back to the modified without saving it,it is then impossible
