Three 90 turns in drain pipe?

Hi,

I am renovating my (small) bathroom and am changing the vanity to a pedestal sink. The problem I am now having is the pedestal is directly in the way of where the old drain pipe was. The drain goes into the left wall, not the wall behind the sink.

Do I just add in a bunch of 90 degree elbows? Will that work, or is that in violation of code? (The house (about 90 years old) is in NYC.) The drain pipe needs to come out the back of the pedestal, turn left twice and then right to go into the wall.

Thank you, in advance, for your input.

It's OK, I understand the silence.

I applaud the forum's tacit acknowledgment that my abilities surpass my own beliefs in them!

Of course I don't need help, it wasn't really a problem at all.

Apparently, there is no limit to the crazy turns your drain plumbing can take after the P-trap (thanks, hardware store plumber guy!).

Sink is installed and draining perfectly. I'll get back to you guys when I have a real problem to solve. Thanks for reading.
