Is there any more information out there concedrning what I should expect? ...Will I be able toget my medical right away,and then receive a letter from FAA asking me for a follow up?
For an FAA exam, the AME will either issue it at the time, reject at the time, or submit it to higher review, depending on the problem.

As I am not an AME, here's my advice in such a case: Make an appointment with an AME just to discuss your case. Best choice is to use an AME other than the one you hope to certify with. Do NOT fill in the Form 8500 application. Get the official scoop on whether or not you can be certified, and pay for that visit, rather than relying on internet advice. If he tells you additional information is needed, round that up and have all your stuff in order when you go for the real exam.
