Unhappy What should I do?

Hi. Im a little confused about the process of extending your eligibility period.
Does it really matter which step you do first, (cancel first on Prometrics prior to IWA)?
I went on IWA first and asked for the extension and payed $70. I was surprised because on the ECFMG site it stated that we get 1 FREE extension. Then they told me that my form 186 was still valid but they mentioned that I have to send it in again?
After IWA I went to onto Prometrics and had no problem cancelling.
Did I do things right? When will I receive my extension? Do I still have to resend my form 186?
Help please? >.<
