Pay a professional to fix and voila you may be poorer but not deflated.

I wonder whether actually cutting open the tube, adjacent from the seam and then installing a decent patch "inside" and then reparing the cut wouldn't infact be the best solution.  you'd then be able to apply some reasonable compression to the repair site while the clean acess slot would be a much tidier repair.  Locate the slot/hole so that you can put a tidy well profiled patch over with no overlaps.

I’ve tried that Pooh that you put inside, didn’t work for long as the whole seam was slowly parting
However my brother in law used it on his aquapro that had a few tiny pin holes and when he sold it 5 years later it was still working fine.
So sounds like yours may be worth a crack or try Scottie’s idea or pay the pro.
