It is probably possible, but it would be far easier to order the other part. Your time and effort are probably worth the cost of eating (metaphorically, of course) the chip you have, assuming you don't find a use for it in another project.
Be careful when ordering chips to make sure you get the correct package. The package suffix is often part of the full part number.
