frozen rear drum brake bearing

Hi guys. I have an older dually (92) and it destroyed the outside wheel bearing on the rear drum. I cant get it off because it seems to have attached itself to the axle tunnel. I have taken all the adjustment out of the brakes, pulled the axle, and installed a steel dually wheel with no tire and tried to pound it off with a sledge hammer but no luck. Anybody dealt with this before? Thanks for any help, I don't really want to replace the entire rear end assembly.

2009 Chev HD 3500 DRW 4X4 DM/A LT ex cab, all stock except for wheels and running boards

Previous was 2002 GMC HD 3500 DRW DM/A 4X4 ex cab (3 times replaced all injectors in less than 100K miles)
