I’ve not heard of any major side effects with metacam (meloxicam) given the hedgehog has the correct dosage. As a non-steroidal anti inflammatory drug, it’s commonly used in treating minor damages, and if your vet is familiar enough with it and with hedgehog sizing/metabolism, you shouldn’t be too concerned about the effects. Me personally, I would write the meds off as a precaution rather than an unnecessary addition.
