Depending on where it is, and how badly its rust-siezed in place, sometimes it is easier to bring it to a muffler place.

Soak it in PB blaster overnight, and try a boxed wrench instead if you can get it on. I find the O2 sensor wrenches flex alot and are more likely to flatten out the nut on the sensor. If that doesn't work, you may need a torch. O2 sensors can be a PITA to get out on snow-belt cars.
