Same situation with prostate cancer. No conversation about lymphedema. Yet very common to do an "extended lymph node removal" for more aggressive biopsies which can trigger significant lymphedema, which generally gets the response "you have to live with it". However, if your lymphedema really bothers you, check what they are doing at MD Anderson (maybe other places too) with lymph node transplant surgeries. Probably some risks involved and may not pan out always, but at least a possible way to mediate it a little.
