I am a self proclaimed DIYer, I always endeavor to do things right but normally it takes a couple swings before I get there!

I installed this disposal a couple of years ago. I have not had any issues with clogs or water smell. I want to raise the line from the right sink to get it above the waste outlet because I'm worried about water collecting in the line, which I know it does to the right of the p-trap.

The issue is the waste outlet comes out right behind the disposal making it difficult to work around. And I can’t get the p-trap past the disposal which I reversed which might be a bad thing? I’m a little confused how to make it work the best way without using flex tubing or multiple 90 bends. I currently see 2 options:

1 - Try to rotate the disposer waste line to the aft so that it goes straight down to the p-trap.

2 - Run a 45 off the p-trap to connect at the disposals present position.

Any advice or letting me know what massive flaws in my work I have done would be greatly appreciated!

That output that you have from the disposal is called a curved discharge tube. A straight discharge tube may be useful. Those are often included with a disposal installation kit.

You could play with the pieces, and you would have a lot of stuff left over.

Yes: 2-ish
The 45 out of the wall is good, then new tubular p-trap to connect at the disposals present position.
Your p trap needs to be under the disposal drain. the long waste arm needs to raise up, travel to the Disposal tailpiece with the tee up high.
never put a tee on its back.
Ptrap arm needs to be coming from the 45 and hit under the disposal drain. rotate if necessary
