I'm hoping the plumber will be able to figure it out. My greatest fear is that the pipe has rusted out beneath the floor slab and filled with sediment in which case the solution will be very difficult and costly.
Great news ! The pipe is not rusted out, just very badly clogged and the plumber was able to clean it out. It's good to have a plumber with God on his side.

I can leave the house and ride my bikes again.
