Replacing shower drain in concrete floor

Hi, My shower pan replacement project was going along well until I removed the 4 bolts in the shower drain that is PVC. All the heads were rusted off. I tried an easy out but that failed to remove the bolts as well. I really don't want to bust up the concrete floor to replace the drain if I don't have to. I know this has had to happen to someone else, so please, any help would be greatly appreciated!

There are little kits to fit a reversible drill that you can get for removing small broken off screws and bolts. (I purchased two off of the Internet and gave one to a friend. Work great. Try )
However, you should be able to find one at a big box in the hardware drill bit section.
Good Luck!
