Surgery will a 223 in step1 get me general surgery?

Hello everyone!
I scored a 223 in my step1. Have always wanted to pursue General Surgery. What should I do now?

Start preparing for step2 or consider other options?

I am an IMG, with no US experience but 3 research projects.

Please tell me.
Very upset and depressed.

Thank you.
