He probably called Mrs silver on her helmet radio to ask for help, she was probably like "hey, come let me out of the garbage chute" and then they lived happily ever after.
Yes. But we didn't see it happen, that's the point. Poe tells Finn how he survived how is this any different? Both are major plot developments that happen off screen and are only addressed through dialogue.
Speaking of things that happen off screen. How did Vader survive ANH? Last we saw he was spinning out of control in a damaged modified Tie-Fighter. How long was he out there? How much food, water and air did he have? How did he escape the blast of the Deathstar? Isn't it established that Tie-Fighters don't have warp drives? Who rescued him?
It's almost like people just accepted that he survived and moved on.
