I wouldn't use the V codes you selected as they seem to be for a treatment of some sort because of the chemotherapy. The removal of the port-o-cath is usually done because the patient is finished receiving chemotherapy - in which case I would not code the lymphoma, unless it specifies the patient is still under treatment for this. Unless the port-o-cath is being removed because it is infected (then I would use a dx for the complication too) I usually code this with just V58.81 - fitting and adjustment of vascular catheter, removal or replacement.
Hope this helps.
