Anesthesiology/Anesthesia in LBD

The issue of using propofol is very intersting to me.  I know I cannot post questions, but wonder if anyone else has had this experience.  My husband who has LBD has had problems with anesthesia always (before he was diagnosed), but the last two surgeries when we knew he had this they used propofol and it seemed like his LBD acutally went away for a quite a while.  



We have wondered if anyone has had this happen and since it happened twice to us we wonder if anyone is looking at this as a treatment for LBD.
