vanity piping issue


Hi everyone,

my brother and i are replacing the vanity in our bathroom; however we have a slight problem and do not know how we can get the old vanity out without damaging the drywall behind the drain pipe because the drain pipe does not go out the back like normal. instead the drunk fools who built the house back 1993 ran the drain pipe wrong and it goes out the side.

any suggestions are very welcome!!

Cut the pipe about 1 1/2" from the cabinet side--if that doesn't clear it enough--cut it plush and plan on opening the wall to replace the T inside the wall

Pictures always help----plumbers have a few specialty tools for removing PVC from fittings --A Ram bit is one of them---let us see what you are up against--someone here will have an answer.
