Any way to cheat a toilet drain over an inch?
 
I have a toilet drain that is in a slab that is slightly too close to a wall, so that when you are taking a dump, your arm practically rubs the wall to the right.

I just bought a new toilet but was wondering if there was any way to somehow move that drain over an inch?

Probably not, but I figured i'd ask for the heck of it. I can't touch the floor, as i'm not ready for new floors yet. I'm assuming I can use an offset flange at the time of new floor installation, but what now?

It's a 12" rough in to the back. That part is fine.

Not without a jackhammer. Drains are supposed to be 18" from side walls and 12" from the back wall

The possibility exists that maybe an "offset drain adapter" could be fashioned to your existing drain now and this would allow you to move things over slightly. This still may require some removal of the subfloor material...just depends.

Better off tucking in your elbows for awhile until your ready for the offset flange

My drain is 13" from the side wall. Luckily, my family is made up of mostly smallish asians.
