How can I get back the 11,000 words I lost on Microsoft Word?

I’m writing a book using Microsoft Word 2007. I accidently clicked on something and I noticed black buttons were to my right. I had no way of knowing what I clicked on or how to get back to what I was doing. I exited out without saving. When I reopened my document more than half of my work is gone. I had over 17,000 words. Now it’s showing over 6,000. Can someone please help me?

    have you tried CTRL+Z or Undo button?, are you sure you didnt save anything? do this

    restart computer and open document again, if still 6,000 words

    go to start menu then type in the search bar "system restore" then select the time this morning or yesterday so that windows will restore your computers setting and files to that time.

    Good luck!
