From what you describe, you have a very solid case. You just have to prove it. First, you need all the evidence you can muster that you were given neurontin when you were prescribed ibuprohin.
Then, you have to prove that the problems you experienced were a result of that error. You obviously had some problems previously, for which the prescription was originally issued.
From what you describe, if appears to me that you would have needed the surgery regardless of the prescription error. As far as injury arising out of the car crash that resulted from the incorrect prescription, that's a stretch. You have to prove "proximate" cause and it seems to me there are a number of steps in between the prescription and the injury.
