can i use flex pvc or ?

Ive been replacing old galvanized drain pipe in an upstairs bathroom,
I got the old pipe out and want to use 1.5 pvc but the hurdle,

The main iron drain that the commode sits on is in one cornor then the sink is on the same end of room other cornor but the threaded 1.5 hole in the big iron drain that the sink ties into isnt a straight shot the old galvanized pipe made up for it with a bend near the iron pipe,
I thought a 45 degree pvc fitting would work but its about twice the bend i need,

I saw flex pvc for spas etc can i use about 2 feet of it to get my tweak or what should i do?

Thanks
b

If a 45 is too much, why not use a 22.5?

Yeah, I wouldn't use any kind of flex pipe. It's too likely to get gunk trapped in it and cause a clog. I'm also not sure how a flexible pipe would do with a snaking if you ever need it.

If the 22.5 that XSleeper recommended doesn't work, can you post a pic so we can see what you're dealing with?
