Stuck Rotaries

My near-new CC has been sitting idle for a couple of months (I know, that's a criminal offence!) whilst I needed to play an EE flat. Now I come to use it, I find the valves so jammed that using oil in every available location has no effect. Do I really need to remove the rotor? Is this a common occurance?

Another point: any thoughts on using a valve oil not specifically stated as being for rotaries (eg Al Cass "Fast")?
