Well, since you've had your biometrics I'm presuming you have already sent off all the paper-work, so now you just sit it out and wait like the rest of us :)

The EAD can take up to 90 days from the USCIS receipt date to obtain, some get it a lot faster. It depends on where you're going through. Have a look at the timelines above.

Regarding your medical, your package is all sent off, so it should be ok I think, but here's what they say

You should really check out the AOS guide on this site. It can probably answer a lot of your questions, but I'll try to as well.

It sounds like you've already applied for your AOS and EAD. My understanding is that you should receive your EAD approval shortly after giving biometrics. I don't know if you've given biometrics for AOS yet. Sometimes they do them for both AOS and EAD at the same time.

You should be receiving an interview appointment letter for your AOS interview. Some lucky people are transferred to the California Service Center and are approved without interview. If you do have an interview and are approved, you should receive your Green Card shortly thereafter. Some people get their passport stamped right away, but others don't.

You will be issued a 2-year conditional Green Card. Before your GC expires, you will have to apply to lift conditions at which point you will be issued a 10-year GC.

That's about as much I can tell you now :)
