Recovering an inserted object (word doc) after deletion?

I inadvertently deleted a word document that was inserted into an excel worksheet then saved the workbook. Is there anyway to recover an older version of the workbook or the word doc that was being edited as "document in Workbook"?

The most recent version of the word doc was in the excel workbook. I have an older version of the word doc on my drive from when I inserted it as an object.

if the changes were made in the word embedded in Excel and then you removed it from Excel then saved it. as far as i know, i am afraid there wouldn't be any possibility to recover,
