[R] Truncated normal distribution

I am using TNORM - rtnorm to simulate from a truncated normal distribution. However, the current function available allows us to define the mean and SD of the non-truncated (original) distribution and then run the simulation.

I would instead like to define the mean and SD of the non-truncated distribution. Is there a way I can solve for the original mean and SD (of non-truncated distribution) from an assume mean and SD for the truncated distribution?

Thanks !
