There are various types of detachments of the retina and surgical management for different types of retinal detachments are according to the case. The information that you have provided is very limited. I feel there is no harm if you can take a second opinion from a retina specialist of good repute so that your confidence level with the ongoing treatment schedule is maintained. Treatments of retinal detachment take time and one has to be very patient for successful outcome.
Take care
