Visa granted, planning to head off in mid-June. All in all, a little over five months from initial application to visa granted. May have been quicker if I'd realised earlier that I could have submitted DS-260 and notification of readiness prior to medical, or immediately after but I was concerned about getting GP letters and receiving affadavit evidence from my in-laws.
