Today I had liver MRI using contrast DOTAREM. How many days do I need to take excessive liquids to flush it out of the system?

In brief: You don't

need to take excessive liquids, assuming normal kidney function, 90% will be eliminated in 48 hours and essentially all of it by 72 hours.
Increasing your hydration may speed it up a little, but there is no medical need to do so.
