It’s impossible to generalize about what I might do with only basic information. But a general idea about how I might approach a patient like this would be the following:

GV 22, GB 20, huatuo T1, T2, T3, T4, T9, UB 32, SP 9, KD 3, ST 36, and ST 40 and then perhaps some other localized points depending on where exactly the lymphedema is most prevalent.

We use GV 22 for some of the emotional aspects, T1-T3 for the immune system and circulation into the arms, T4 for the breast, then tonify kidney qi and resolve dampness with the rest.
