General Anesthesia & Seizures HELP FAST before Monday Morning.

My 42 Y.O. son will be getting cataract surgery under GENERAL ANESTHESIA . He takes seizures and are controlled by medications but could have one at anytime. He has about 15 days a month seizure free. T he thing is the anesthesiologist has a concern about him taking seizures while under anesthesia and there making us jump thru so many hoops it's crazy. My understanding thru research is that anesthesiologist give another med while putting him under so if he were to seizure it would prevent it from happening. My question I so deeply need fast has anyone had a person get anesthesia and extra meds to stop a seziure ?
