Unhappy Bathroom drain question

I know this will probably be difficult to explain but here goes. I am trying to hook up my p-trap to my existing drain pipe for my new bathroom in the basement and I'm not sure if the sink will drain based on how I have it setup. The builder basically made a mistake and put the toilet drain to close to the wall based on where they put the drain and vent pipe. Because of this error I had to frame a bump out in the bathroom which caused me to rough in the hot and cold line right of the drain pipe that comes through the wall (drain pipe is about 10 inches to the left, away from where my sink drain will be). I have attached a .bmp file to try and show you what I mean. Basically in question is can I use a 90 degree fitting after the straight part of the drain after the trap that will go towards the back of the wall. Please take a look at the picture.

If all you are running is 10 inches, no problem. I'd sure look at a long sweep 90 or even 2-45's, if problems develop in the future and you need to snake the line, you'll be glad you had this installed.
