Drain pipe in wrong place

I am in the process of installing a basement bathroom in my home. After installing the wall behind the where the toilet will go and doing some measuring. I have came to realize that the rough in of the drain pipe is 3" short of the standard 12" needed to mount a toilet. My question is with a concrete floor would an offset flange work? and since my drain pipe is cast iron, how would that mount up to that? Thanks for any advice as I am trying to avoid tearing up the floor to rememdy this.

Really, the wall is in the wrong place, not the pipe. Try to find an offset flange with a rubber gasket to go into the cast iron. It may work.

actually the wall isn't as all the other plumbing and mechanicals for the house are on the other side of it, but thanks for the advice.

I think you are going to need to break concrete, 3in. offset on a cast iron pipe is a long measurment; plus you would need a inside cast iron pipe cutter, sorry.
