I think Brian has made an excellent point. I must admit that I tend to treat even 35mm film as if it were 8x10 sheets and expect an LF hit rate which is completely unrealistic. I really should "bang away" much more than I do.
However while film is relatively cheap, full roll processing and printing isn't and the OP may be caught in a bit of a bind.
If it is possible and you can find a lab prepared to print only the negs you want to be printed then there is a good case for home film processing where only a changing bag or lightproof cupboard is needed.
You are then in a position to process and discard the failed negs. This may be unrealistic of course but I hope not. DIY processing might well give you a sense of control that will help matters
