Have you ever had a brain biopsy? How was it?

I'm having a brain biopsy this week in an attempt to ascertain why my brain is very swollen.* I'm quite anxious about it, and in searching the internet for personal stories of biopsies I've been a bit disappointed. I'd love to hear from you if you have experienced a biopsy of your brain.
* I had encephalitis in October and the swelling has not reduced at all. I have had worsening epilepsy since. I've had a lot of tests and the consensus seems to be that I may have a benign brain tumor. That's not really my question though, since I think my doctors are on top of figuring out what's going on.
