I'm scared of getting an colonoscopy to look for colonic polyps. Does it hurt?

No: In the hands of a well trained gastroenterologist using the right sedation, you should feel no pain during colonoscopy. The procedure should last around 20 to 30 minutes. You may feel some bloating after colonoscopy.
You need to ask your gastroenterologist what type of sedation is used. Propofol is clearly superior to versed/valium.

How can CHF lead to pulmonary edema?

Back up of fluiud: In CHF the heart either can't pump blood/fluid forward or is unable to relax to allow blood/fluid to fill the chambers. These are known as systolic and diastolic heart failure. The fluid in turn will back up into the lungs as the heart & lung are connected. When the fluid overcomes the ability of the lungs to pump it the condition is known as pulmonary edema.
