bathrub drain question and problem


I re-did the plumbing run for an upstairs bath, tub to sing to toilet to stack. The length of pvc from the tub to the stack is about 4'. From the top of the trap to the stack there is adequate slope but I had to snake the trap and drain around a joist and so the bottom of the trap and the 3" of angled pvc are below the highest point of the slope. Will this adequately drain the tub? Does it sound problematic? Thank you!

I don't know what that means, but it sounds like what I am describing, so yes. Bad, good?

The pipng has to go down never back up. So if it go's back up you will aways have a problem draining.
