Phishing email

Hi guys, I got a phishing email pretending to be from paypal. I wasn't aware of the scam when I clicked on it and ended up giving the scammers my paypal login email and password. It redirected me to a second page where I had to enter my details. Halfway through filling my details i realised no other link on the page was functional and got suspicious. Hit back and logged onto paypal from another browser, changed my username and password and enabled the option where paypal confirms each time someone logs in by texting me a code. I changed my paypal email, password, secret questions and forwarded the fraudulent email to spoof@paypal.com. & that brings me to my question - is whatever I did sufficient or do I need to do anything more to protect myself? To the best of my knowledge I left that page before I entered my credit card details but either way my bank requires me to authenticate each purchase by sending a code on my phone. I'm really worried, any advice would be really appreciated!
