I have retrieved my documents but when I try to open them it says 'document does not exist' I know it does because it is in front of my eyes but will not open, can anyone help in any way ?

If the document was "in front of your eyes" as a thumbnail icon in the stardesktop panel (after calling LibO without a file) or as an entry of the PickList, the file can well be moved to a different folder, deleted, or renamed. If this happened using a file manager or different software LibO will not know about, and will correctly tell you that the file you tried to open does not exist.

If your case is different, please explain to more detail.

I have 20 files on my Libre Office and the first four from top left to right will open, the other 16 says file does not exist. I have never ever had a problem opening any of them before and I cannot understand what is happening ?

Only you (or someone at your computer) can read the filepaths shown when hovering over the thumbnails, and then go to the respective folders to make sure if the files are there. If a file is missing, you (or your helper) can search it by system means.
If a file actually has disappeared I am still sure that not LibO deleted it.
Did you rename any folder?
