    Possibly you can back off the cam adjusters and get some movement?

    Wheel cylinders might have seized a bit or a film of rust binding the shoes to the drum. I would do what CE said and do a bit of heavy duty rocking! (car in neutral please!) before pulling them apart altho that may be an eventual consequence. Maybe tap the back or side of the drum with a hammer.

    If it was left with the handbrake on ,try flexing the ,outer sheave of the cable with the brake off ,to free the inner which may have rusted or jammed ,jack it up one wheel at a time to determine which wheel is the problem .pugs
