Your code will get you the current particle, not the primary.
If you are trying to calculate the equivalent dose used in radiation protection, note that the weighting factor is a function of the primary particle, not the secondary.
Also note that e.g. gamma don't deposit much energy themselves. Rather it is the secondary charged particles they create that deposit the energy. You can see this by adding a
G4cout << edep << " " << particleName << G4endl
to your code.
