It can be done, but there is some work involved. If you DIY, you will need a rotory hammer (it's a small jack-hammer) to break out the concrete and expose the pipe below and give operating room. Then the old bend has to be cutout. Then a new piece of pipe and a new bend can be installed. Keep in mind the rough-in needs to be 12" from the finished wall behind the toilet. That's 12" from the sheetrock to the center of the drain pipe or flange. When everything is in place, fill the hole, pack it well, and pour concrete. It's not rocket science, but it does need to be done right.
