Can the injection off CCK during a HIDA scan be fatal or have any adverse effects on the body? Thanks!

In brief: Almost certainly not

Since CCK is a substance your own body makes it is pretty benign, especially given in a one-time dose.
It may give you a feeling of bloating for a few hours as it delays stomach emptying, but there are very few other effects from it that you will feel. I have never heard of any fatalities
