It went really well for me/ It went really bad for me.

Bien can mean very under certain circumstances. In English it equates to good and as in I feel good and tired. It is more frequently used in Spanish than in English-- at least Latin American Spanish. No estoy bien seguro si se usa bien así en España.

Poli is right. I will point out that "Me fue muy bien mal" sounds strange to me. The normal usage I have observed is "Me fue bien mal".


Me fue mal. = I did bad. It turned out bad. It went bad for me.
Me fue bien mal. = I did really bad. It turned out really bad. It went really bad for me.
