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.

How does the lymphatic function during good health and bad health differ?

Broad question: Impossible to answer this in this venue. Lymphatics are a part of our immune system and extremely complex in both macroscopic and microscopic composition. The terms good and bad health are too vague. If you refine your question perhaps could give a better response.
