No 90% bends


I have a 90% lateral bend in the 3" waste pipe rough in of my basement bathroom. The bend is about 2' from the toilet, and the pipe is vented about 1'
from the john. It's under concrete, so I really don't want to change it. Any opinions? Thanks

It isn't a good thing. Solids don't like to turn sharp corners if you get my drift.

Is it a short sweep or a long sweep 90? Makes a big difference
