Default Rough-In After Concrete Poured

Before I call in a plumber for quotes, could someone give me an idea of how
much a PIA it will be to install toilet and sink drains once concrete floor
has been poured (and hardened)? It's about a six foot run to existing
pipes.

Thanks,
Mark J

It should be done before the concrete. How do you expect to tie in the
drain under solid concrete? I'd consider an ejector toilet rather that
take out the concrete.

A few hours work breaking up a channel through the concrete and patching it

Personally, for a 6 foot run, I'd probably open the concrete, and avoid
the ejector pump setup that has a lot more maintenance/reliability
issues over the life of the house. And I'd do it sooner, rather than
later. If the concrete is only a few days old, it's still not as hard
as concrete that has had a month to cure.
