William, your post sheds much light on it. Thanks. However, I hope you and @Freeman can be ready for a revelation. It is this from They inform us that pantaloon hernia is not one but mulitple hernias combined:
“A pantaloon hernia, also known as a saddlebag hernia, is defined as any combination of two adjacent hernia sacs of the femoral or inguinal region (direct or indirect inguinal hernias (alternative plural: herniae)) on the same side 2. Thus, examples include: femoral with direct hernias, femoral with indirect hernias, indirect with direct hernias.”

Given that is an organization of radiologists, we can assume the quote above is authoritative. So, William, both you and Freeman might actually have or had two or more hernias/herniae, as well as explaining the contradictory diagnoses you received.
