Default 207 in step 1

Hi everyone. I was aiming for a 230 but unfortunately I only got a 207 on step 1. Im an IMG and want to go into general surgery but as I see, my chances are very slim now and are uncertain on how to proceed. Im very sad because Im convinced that my score does not reflect my actual performance, but there is no way to change that.
I want advice on what to do next, other specialties are not so appealing to me but I would still consider internal medicine or others that may have some sort of hands on... I already took both CS and CK and Im waiting for results.
Should I still try to apply for surgery or should I basically forget about it? If you think I can still go for it, which programs would offer better chances to get an interview?
Any help will be well appreciated
Thanks!

Lets see how CK and CS went then we will let you know. And Like the post before me said, Please share how you were doing in UWorld (first round) and NBMEs?
