Sorry to hear about your puppy.
Scudder had Cherry eye. I used the ointment, until the cherry eyes was out all the time. It would pop in and out, but once it was permanently out, the vet said it was time for surgery. There are several ways to do the surgery, depending on the eye shape etc. Scudder had to have the most extensive surgery. They normally don't shave the eye, but they did with him. My vet had to carve a pocket out and then stitched. I didn't expect him to look so bad. He looks awful! It was so bad, I didn't even save any pictures.
I don't remember how long he had to wear the cone, but I'm thinking 7-10 days. I think I also had to put drops or ointment in. The cone was a pain in the butt, since I have a doggy door. He had a heck of a time!
