Can you install a P Trap away from drain?

Hello,

A friend and I built a mortar-bed tile shower. He is a part-time plumber, but he forgot to install a P trap under the drain. After days of building, tiling, and mortaring, we are very reluctant to rip up the whole thing to install a P trap!

There is a possibility that we can get on the other side of the wall, break up the concrete, and get to the drain pipe, but (probably) not directly under the drain itself. Can we install a P trap away from the drain? I'd guess it's going to be a horizontal foot away from the drain itself.
