In brief: Compression, massage

If you have lymphedema from lymph node removal then your options are to wear a special fitted compression wrap on your arm. Something else that can help is lymphatic massage.

In brief: Surgery

If there is a lymphatic leakage from your incision you may need to have the incision reopened to identify the lymphatic leak so it can be ligated.
