Lymphatics: It is difficult to answer such a broad question. Good health and bad health are completely relative. For instance, a person may be moribund (on death's door) and still have a normally functioning lymphatic system. Alternatively, a patient may have lymphedema as a complication of a surgery and otherwise be very healthy with a long life expectancy.
