My wife has lymphedema in her arm from breast cancer

My wife has lymphedema in her arm from breast cancer surgery five years ago. Saturday she went for a massage and today she can't move her arm and is in constant pain. also her arm looks like it has sunburn and is very hot when you touch it . She has put on a compression sleeve, didn't help. We tried ice packs, didn't help. Any suggestions on how she can get some relief? Thank you.

I had breast cancer in my left breast 3 years ago. I had chemo and radiation, then surgery. No mastectomy. I am having lymphedema on my left arm right now.
