Even if its done it will hardly last, if it was not the sidewall but a regular tear i have seen tubes put in and patches and those work well (even though generate more heat) as to extend some more life of the tyre. Its just pushing the inevitable for a few more months.
But side wall repairs seldom work and the patch falls off inside.
Offcourse you are taking a risk with side wall repair though!
