Seizure after head injury

 I am writing a story in which my main character is fighting with another character. He receives a blow to the head and suffers a seizure.

 

My questions are

 

- Would he fall to the ground and have a seizure RIGHT AWAY? Or would he be limp for a certain period of time before the seizure starts? 

 

- Is it possible for the character to get knocked out, then come around for a little while very confused and THEN have a seizure. 

 

- Would it be more realistic for him to get hit in a certain part/area of the brain to trigger a seizure? 

- After going to the hospital would they just be given anti-seizure medications and sent home the next day? Maybe admitted for observation? 

 

Thank you all so much.
