Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. I am Dr Uzair.
I am reviewing your post and will post back with your reply momentarily.

No it does not mean that procedure did not work, rather it is usual to have pain because of inflammation and nerve irritation around the area. Nothing to worry about. It will get better in couple of days.
