Your photos should have been uploaded as you were uploading your questions. Unfortunately, I couldn't direct you to know which are the branches to keep without seeing them.

I will guide you, as best as I can, through text, though.

Any branch that is originating BELOW the graft scion on the main trunk should be cut. The bark on the trunk will show a clear graft union.
